Fargo Jet Center flight school added four new planes to its training fleet



Fargo, North Dakota – The flight school at Fargo Jet Center is expanding its training fleet.

The director of FJC’s flight school said in a statement, “Our flight school has experienced tremendous growth within the past few years, thus creating a need to expand our fleet. These aircraft will offer a new flight training option while playing a vital role in allowing more rental availability for our customers, such as overnight rentals.”

The fleet was expanded with four new Cessna 172R aircraft. The Garmin G1000 avionics are installed in the new additions, which improve trainee pilots’ awareness of their surroundings and make flying safer overall.

Total training hours for 2021, according to the school, include 4,497 flight hours and 3,040 ground-based training hours, bringing the total to 7,537 hours. These figures represent a 48 percent increase over 2020’s total of 5,059 hours spent on training. There is a good chance that the total number of hours spent on training in 2022 will top the number of hours spent on training in the previous years.

The FCJ flying school currently has a fleet of 14 planes.
