Experience Freeflight Aviation
Southern NJ’s friendliest and most value oriented flight club. At Freeflight, you’re more than just a Hobbs meter, you’re part of our family. (And you have lots of siblings, so look out!) A unique Flight School for taking flying lessons, located at the Flying W Airport Resort. Our operation is built on the premise that flying small airplanes is first and foremost FUN. The original flight school, founded in 1983 as a value oriented club for the general aviator changed ownership in 2003 and it’s name in 2009 to Freeflight Aviation.
As in past history, Freeflight Aviation’s goal is to share our experiences and provide an atmosphere of informative, fun, flight training. Aviation changes your life and helps you grow as a person. Whether you’re looking for your first pilot certificate, instrument rating, or proficiency checks, our instructors are ready to bring you on board. For an airport tour, a Discovery Flight, or general information, please give us a call. It would be an honor to show you around our home or give you your first flight lesson.
Freeflight Aviation’s First Blog Post!
Blue Eyes is posting her first WordPress Blog for Freeflight Aviation after our new website has been set up for little under a year. Having said that, Blue Eyes recently brought WordPress For Dummies, and have since decided she needed WordPress For Super Dummies. Doing additional exploring around the internet, Blue Eyes found the WordPress.Org website. A Guide has been found she thinks. We will see after her first posting.

Saving Freeflight Aviation From the Snow!
Based at the Flying W Airport (N14) we have, since the Christmas Holidays, seen the Snow come and come and come. I guess it hasn’t snowed for a week now, but the big white piles still tower above many high winged aircraft on the field. As it so often happens, Murphy’s Law went into effect for our Airport’s snow removing equipment. All snow removal equipment broke down except for one lone white pickup truck with a plow. Yes, plowing was slowly being done one truck width at a time. People came to the rescue, equipment got fixed, big large snow mountains were created, the sun finally returned, and a day of good flying began again.
Freeflight was rescues by their own flight school members. Shovel and broom in hand, heavy wet snow was slowing being removed from and around our Rental Aircraft. Steve, our flight instructor miraculously appeared with his powerful red snow blower, saving us from the long afternoon of shoving, sore backs, and wet cold soggy feet. Early the next day, upon our arrived to the Flying W Airport, Shawn’s beautiful blue New Holland tractor, is seen moving snow, opening more tarmac space for the aircraft to taxi. Shawn, then, spent his afternoon clearing additional pathways to some snow blocked hanger doors. With sunny weather on the way, aircraft and pilots could now escape into that wild blue wonder. We thank our members for their support and for making our life and the airport’s life a little easier.
