A Little History:
Curtis and Ruby Eads started this flight school in 1959 as a family business at what then was called the Portsmouth Airport (now Hampton Roads Executive Airport (KPVG)).
They were are remarkable couple who taught hundeds to fly (including their son Curtis Jr. "Butch") from 1959 until Curtis' passing in 2001. Ruby continued the business until her passing in 2006. The Eads family were favorably well known to the FAA and General Aviation community all over the region.
Curtis was honored by induction into the Virginia Aeronautical History Society in 1996.
We of Aerofeather Aviation Inc., as the subsequent owner/operator of Curtis Eads Flight School moved this business to Suffolk Executive Airport (KSFQ) in Jan-2018 and continue to honor the legacy of the Eads name and reputation for quality aircraft and structured flight training from primary to instrument/commerical ratings.
While "Giving Wings to Your Dreams" since 1959 our continuing goal is to provide Safe, Legal and Mission Ready Aircraft with Competent Instructors.
We do not only teach you to fundamentally fly safely, we teach you how to travel and integrate into the National Airspace System.
The question remains: Do you see yourself as a safe, qualified pilot? It requires your disiplined commitment to learn and remain proficient.
Our Aircraft Rental Agreement and Training Standards are stringent and require your unreserved diligence to do business with CEFS.
Call us and lets discuss a successful path for you.
