Student Pilot

Jon is an awesome pilot and instructor! I flew with him back when he was an airline pilot. He's the same in his videos as he is in person: fun, personable, big personality, and full of information. He's so easy going and friendly that you're not intimidated to ask him questions about anything! I love watching his videos to gain information and see what cool adventures he's up to. So excited for him and all of his future endeavors and flying adventures! Wish he'd open a flight school in NC so I could attend! He's the kind of instructor you want because he's qualified & informative but he's easy going and will treat you like a friend!

Private Pilot

Fly8ma took me from Zero to Hero, I came in with absolutely no aviation knowledge and in a few weeks I finished Private Pilot ground school and started flying. The lessons are perfect. You go over each lesson topic, then watch entertaining but information packed videos that explain exactly what you just learned. Jon and the other CFIs are always there to answer all the questions I've had with quick responses. I'm excited to use Fly8ma for all my future ratings.

Private Pilot

I never have personally meet Jon but I'd love to some day! His YouTube videos are amazing. When I was doing my ground School and came up against something I didn't understand I'd always go to fly8ma.com and watch a video about it. Then I'd understand! Hes a great teacher!
Thanks Jon!

That's a great question, our pilot ground school is different...


Our online flight training courses are different than others.  Let us prove it to you!

The reality is no one is going to get through flight training on their own.  You need a solid foundation and support system to get you the knowledge you need when you need it, and to help keep you on track.

The better your knowledge foundation and the better your support system, the faster you will get through flight training the more money you will save.

We have a simple two-step system for you.

Step 1:

To Save Money on your Flight Training: Use the best tools available to gain the knowledge you need to become a safe and skilled pilot.

Step 2:

Find the support system you need to be successful. Ask who is going to be there to answer your questions right away?  Ask who is going to tell you and warn you about what to watch out for so you are not overcharged in flight training? Ask who will give you guidance so you can learn to fly and complete your ratings as quickly and cheaply as possible?

FLY8MA is built specifically to be the best online flight training provider available in the United States to meet those two key needs.

Why do more than 10,000 pilots use FLY8MA to pass their written exams and checkrides each year?

Because FLY8MA is different.  Here is how.
