And this here is Scott Tinsman and instructor Cade. Scott tore off the training wheels, kicked Cade out and nailed some landings all by his lonesome! Snaps for Scott!


HI ALL! On this nasty, windy, cold, snowy Tuesday, let’s take a moment to celebrate some recent “W”s at QC Aero. This here is Brady Neyrinck. Though he lives in CO, he took a few weeks in the QC to knock out his CFI rating. Live in CO and need some flying fact-a-roonies? Brady HAS EM! Congrats, Brady!


What were you doing when you turned 16? Flying an airplane by yourself? Because that’s what Ryann did 🎉😆 CONGRATS on the solo and happy birthday to one of the flyest chicks we know 🥳


Big congrats to now COMMERCIAL pilot, Chris Nye! He come with his own airplane to finish up the rating and nailed that checkride in record time 😎🤘🏽


📣Calling future aviators: Win a discovery flight with Quad Cities Aero at Girls in Aviation Day! Flight instructor Summer Kuehl will give up to 3 winners a chance to fly with her over the Quad Cities. All the kiddos have to do is:
1) Attend Girls in Aviation Day on Saturday, Sept. 23.
2) Pick up a "passport" and have at least 6 exhibitors initial it.
3) Drop it in the drawing box at the exit with your contact information before you leave.
