I started my flight training here at Princeton Airport so I’m a good advertisement for the quality of the training. I started in 2006. Got my private license then on up through CFII, ATP and so on. I’ve flown thousands of hours since then. All with Princeton Airport instructors. They’ve done a fabulous job. I like it here at Princeton Airport. It’s a wonderful facility physically and there are nice people here as well.
