Whether it's business or pleasure that brings you here to Savannah, GA, our newly built first class FBO and Flight School will give a comfortable environment to begin and end your flight experience in the Savannah area. Located at the Savannah Hilton Head Airport (KSAV) we are located just off interstate 95 and conveniently ten miles away from downtown Savannah. The Savannah area known as the Low Country is surrounded by coastal waters, rivers, and local tributaries all of which form the beautiful local landscape. Scenic flights up and down the coast or evening sunset flights produce some of the most breathtaking views you can get from an airplane. The Fly Corps Aviation team takes great pride in our fleet and as such they are kept, clean, and ready for the next flight. All of our aircraft are IFR rated equipped with the latest avionics to include either a GNS 430 with WASS or a GNS 530 with WAAS as well as electronic flight bags with inflight weather.
