An Unparalleled Fleet of Aircraft
Our large fleet of 26 aircraft includes everything from two seat trainers to turbo props. We can take you all the way from your first lesson to becoming an airline pilot! With such an extensive fleet to choose from, renting a plane is never a problem at T&G. Members enjoy 24-hour access to aircraft through our flight scheduling software. Plus, T&G has a team of highly trained maintenance professionals that monitor all of our aircraft to ensure their safe and airworthy condition.

Our flight instructors are held to the same standards as major airline pilots and are committed to providing you with quality service. T&G will pair you with an instructor that fits your needs and your schedule. We offer private and instrument ground schools on a regular basis. These structured classes bring down the cost of training and give you the benefits of learning from others in your class.
