Bay Area Flying Club and Flight School
Bay Area Flying Club is a flight training facility and flying club located in the San Francisco Bay Area. We offer flight training to all levels of pilots in the San Francisco Bay region. Our members enjoy the opportunity for fly-ins, free classes, and member gatherings organized by the Club. A pilot shop is also part of our operation, and offers supplies and materials necessary for flight training.
What makes Bay Area Flying Club an outstanding place for both student pilots and advanced pilots? Our highly skilled flight instructors, reasonably priced training aircraft, and decades of experience make our family of flight schools a fun and affordable place to learn to fly or fly for fun. Our Flight School is located on the Livermore Municipal Airport (KLVK). This is just outside the congested airspace surrounding the San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose Airports. Students learning to fly in Livermore rarely have to wait in line to take-off and can quickly begin their lesson or practice session. Compare that to other airports, where you have to fly away from the congested San Francisco airspace to practice areas. Livermore commonly has perfect flight conditions while facilities closer to the coast are socked in with fog, clouds, or rain.
Master the skills needed to fly legally and safely as you learn to fly with our FAA Certified Flight Instructors and economical training aircraft. Make flight training affordable by signing up for one of our continuously rotating ground schools. Since most students learn best in a classroom environment, we focus on live ground school rather than online or video. Our classes teach you the knowledge of aerodynamics, aircraft components, meteorology, and FAA regulations. These classes provide the information needed to pass the FAA Written Test. Our curriculum for learning to fly has been carefully developed over the last 50 years and, along with our skilled Flight Instructors, has helped more than 10,000 pilots gain certificates, ratings, or currency.
American Flight Schools has been training pilots since 1977. Our graduates range from business professionals who use their licenses for pleasure and personal, to pilots pursuing professional careers in aviation working for the major airlines and corporate ventures.
Learning to fly an airplane is a challenging and rewarding endeavor. Flying allows you the option to travel based upon your schedule. Whether using an aircraft for business or pleasure, or simply enjoying a summer sunset from a different perspective, personal flight is an experience that thrills a typical pilot on every flight.
