What People Say About FLY8MA Online Pilot School

99% Student Satisfaction Rating

The private pilot ground school course is one of the best online courses I have taken. The information is timely and Jon has a very presentation style to keep you motivated and interested to continue learning. I highly recommend this course.

Scott A.
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.

Meet Your Flight Instructors


Jon Kotwicki CFI | CFII | MEI | AGI | ATP

flight instructor

Jon began flying at age 19, working towards his Private Pilot Certificate.  It only took one flight for Jon to discover his passion for aviation, and just two years after his first flight he became a Flight Instructor.  Jon has spent thousands of hours flying everything from bush planes to airline jets. He now teaches flight students from Private Pilots to Airline Pilots and makes videos for FLY8MA. Jon's #1 goal is to make the safest, smartest pilots out there and make a lot of them!

In 2017, 2018, and 2021 he was honored to receive the Distinguished Flight Instructors award by, part of their Flight Training Experience Awards program.

Steph Blanchard CFI | CFII | AGI

flight instructor in front of airplane

Steph learned to fly in Alaska out of necessity (living in a town with no roads makes flying an almost daily requirement).  After years of flying in the bush, Steph now instructs Private Pilot students in Alaska on her days off.  In the winter, you'll find her flying freight to her business and other Alaskan villages, and in the summer, you see her landing planes on the beaches taking tourists to see the massive Alaskan Brown Bears.
