Steven Schinske – Chief Pilot

Steven Schinske is our chief pilot and has come to us from the airline industry. He understands the world of the professional pilot and so he trains the students how to prepare for it.  His knowledge, patience, and talent is a true benefit to our school and we are very proud to have him leading our team.  When you graduate from TCFT, rest assured that you will be one of the best pilots in the country and you will have become so because of the expertise and leadership from one of the greatest chief pilots ever.





Our Instructors

Each TCFT flight instructor has been trained to the highest standards possible and has accrued thousands of hours of one on one instruction.

Many of our flight instructors are hired directly onto our team after completing our CFI program. Our instructors work one-on-one with their students both in the air and on the ground.

Students often complete the entire program with the same instructor and in the same aircraft, which allows them to find a comfortable relationship and learn faster. Instructors are available to fly with students 24 hours-a-day – 7 days a week, rain or shine.

We encourage our instructors to provide actual instrument flight time with their students whenever possible to gain real-world experience.  Regularly flying in Florida’s busy airspace will help you become a far better pilot than those that learn to fly in other areas.
