Training Programs

Southern Maine Aviation can offer training for the following in our own or your aircraft:

Private Pilot (ASEL)

Instrument Rating (ASEL)

Complex and/or High-Performance Endorsements
Commercial Rating (ASEL)
Flight Instructor (CFI)
Flight Instructor Instrument (CFII)
Spin Training
Tailwheel Endorsements
Flight Reviews
G1000 training in our C172 SP and simulator

If you're career oriented, please also consider pursuing academic studies separate from flight training. You can save a lot of money, train on your own schedule, all while getting the same FAA-certified professional instruction -- with a more personal touch.


Our instructors are also qualified to provide technically advanced, multi-engine, or seaplane training, in your own aircraft. Please call regarding your specific make and model of aircraft.

Southern Maine Aviation also offers numerous advanced ratings, although the Instrument Rating and spin/tailwheel training are the most common.


Check out our Advanced Ratings page for more details.


We have access to local designated pilot examiners, please call for contact information
