TCMG Flight Training would like to announce some exciting new training opportunities starting in 2019. We''re expanding our market to include Sport Pilot training for airplane and gyroplane using the Mooney A2A Cadet, Luscombe 8E and a new ELA 07A Cougar gyroplane.

These courses are in addition to the current courses for Private Pilot, Tail Wheel Endorsement and Spin training.

The training methods used by TCMG Flight Training are based on more than 40 years of providing flight instruction at many area flight training schools, which includes Piper Aircraft Corporation and Flight Safety Academy.

TCMG Flight Training is located at the Sebastian Municipal Airport (X26) and New Hibiscus Airpark (X52). We specialize in developing sound piloting skills with emphasis on attitude flying using the natural horizon.

Training Goals

Courses provided by TCMG are structured to allow the student to progress as rapidly as their skill level permits while attempting to keep their cost to the minimum required for completion.

The aircraft we use develop strong stick & rudder skills in the pilot. They are strong basic aircraft responding well to pilot who develop the feel for what's required to fly them well.

Many valuable techniques used by glider pilots are also taught such as use of glide angles in managing altitude for power off approaches, effects of wind on glide path, as well as  difference between best glide and minimum sink.

Primary Airplane Training

TCMG provides training for the Private Pilot Airplane rating using a Luscombe 8E and a Mooney A2A. The student would start their instruction in the Luscombe, which provides an excellent platform for acquiring strong stick and rudder skills.

After soloing the Luscombe, the student is transitioned to the Mooney Cadet for the cross country, instrument, and night flying phases of the training.

Benefits of this approach are the student graduates with strong stick and rudder skills as well as the ability to fly both tailwheeled and tricycle geared airplanes.


Tail wheel Endorsement

We also offer tail wheel  instruction in a Luscombe 8E, an airplane with flying qualities well suited to this type of training.  The training duration varies based on previous experiences but would typically take ten hours for a pilot with no previous experience with tail wheel aircraft. The pilot receives a tail wheel endorsement after completion of this course.

Spin Training

Loss of Control (LOC) accidents remain a leading contributor of accident fatalities. TCMG offers stall awareness and spin training in the Luscombe 8E with a focus on developing the skills needed to safely deal with unexpected upsets, upsets usually caused by encountering some form on stall.  The pilot receives a spin endorsement upon completion this course.

New Courses

Sport Pilot Gyroplane Training

TCMG is affiliated with Blades Over Me to offer gyroplane training in an ELA 07A Cougar. For pilots with a current valid pilot license, they can obtain a Sport Pilot Gyroplane endorsement giving them Pilot In Command privileges in LSA gyroplanes under Sport Pilot Rules. 

We also offer Sport Pilot training for initial issuance of a Sport Pilot License using the ELA.

Sport Pilot Airplane Training

TCMG will also provide training for an initial issuance of Sport Pilot in Airplane using either the Mooney or Luscombe
