BURLINGTON, N.C. — CFI Chris Whittle, who has logged more than 10,000 hours of flight time, has opened Elon Aviation, a flight school and aircraft rental company at Burlington-Alamance Regional Airport (BUY).
Elon Aviation trains students to obtain their private, commercial, instrument, multi-engine and Certified Flight Instructor certifications.
Additionally, Elon Aviation rents aircraft, including a Cessna C-172SP and a Piper Arrow II; sells a wide range of pilot supplies; and offers brokering services to those seeking to buy or sell aircraft.
“Every day, I meet many people interested in aviation, and we want to build a community of pilots around this interest,” he said.
Among Elon Aviation’s community building endeavors is its sponsorship of the IMC Club-Burlington Chapter, which educates pilots, affords networking opportunities and enables pilots to share their knowledge with other aviation enthusiasts.
