Giving Wings to your Dreams since 1955

New Pilots and Ratings


We are proud to say that CEFS had a part in the making of new aviators and advanced ratings. This is what we do as a team working together to promote aviation and safety.


This list is admittedly incomplete as CEFS began operations in 1955 with Curtis and Ruby Eads working together as a family.


If you were trained at CEFS we would like to hear from you and add your name, your instructor's name and perhaps a picture as well.


Aerofeather Aviation Inc acquired CEFS on 30-Dec-2017 and will do our best to reconstruct a history of the Eads organization as time and Customer feedback permits.
