Full Time Flight Instructors
You have a personal certified flight instructor who is available to meet your scheduling needs, guide you step by step through the whole flight training process, and encourage you along the way.
We utilize a variety of modern Cessna, Cirrus, and Piper aircraft that offer our customers the perfect integration of state-of-the-art avionics with long standing safety, reliability, and comfort.
Our aircraft are maintained to the highest standards by Silverhawk Aviation, a Cessna Service Center. We spend more money on maintenance than most other flight schools in the area. We can’t imagine lowering our safety standards, in order to lower our rental rates.
Cessna Flight Training System
The Cessna online multimedia training course makes learning to fly easier than ever. With home study corresponding with each flight, you come completely prepared for every training flight.
Training for Your Goals
We not only give you the training needed to meet the FAA’s private pilot’s license standards, but also help you to integrate flying into your life. Whether you plan to use flying for business or pleasure, we customize your training so you can competently and safely use aviation for your specific goals and destinations.
When you fly with us, you are a part of our community. That means, when you complete your first solo flight and then finish your pilot’s license, your photo goes up on our wall with all the other Performance pilots. We also offer educational seminars and social events, and keep you connected with other pilots on our Facebook page.

What satisfied customers are saying...
I trusted the team at Performance Aircraft to help me identify an airplane that fit my mission, budget, and goals. I'm happy to say that they exceeded all my expectations by keeping me informed throughout every step of the process. You can trust that this team is not out to sell you an airplane but to be a lifelong aviation partner. I would definitely use them again for selling or buying an aircraft. Thank you!– Eric Leatherman, Nebraska
As a first time buyer, I was nervous about the entire process–plane selection, negotiations, paperwork, and closing. After my first contact with Stacey at Performance Aircraft, I knew they were the right fit to help me. She quickly made me feel at ease with everything. Their website is positively the best and most comprehensive in its class. The process was smooth and the plane was exactly as it was represented. I couldn't be happier!– Dennis Cooley, Florida

Bill knew the value of airplanes as well as anyone I have met in the industry and I have been flying for over 30 years. You guys did a great job communicating with me throughout the process and kept the plane moving to closing. I was very pleased with everything.– Randy Christo, Nebraska
Performance Aircraft can help you achieve a life-time dream of becoming a pilot. You can go for it with confidence and know that you will receive great instruction as evidenced by many before you.
