Pilots will continue to be in high demand. Come see us to get started, or to finish up!

Fun to look back at the logbook, all the way to the beginning... in this case June 25th, 1995. My very first flight at UFS in 555UF. My instructor was Kevin McCarty (sp?). I often wonder now, 23 years later, what Kevin is doing?

I love that I get to carry on the tradition that Bob Watts started years ago. Every new CFI that joins the team gets (or has) to teach me their first lesson earning their first $5 (it's a VERY short lesson)! Now it's time to earn money while continuing to get paid to train/fly! We are lucky to have you on the team Austin! #first5dollars

Welcome to our newest flight instructor, Austin Lane, CFI, CFII. We are lucky to have Austin join the team and have him teach our students to learn to fly! Help us welcome Austin to the team!

Austin was born in raised in Conroe, Texas. At first, he dreamed of being an air traffic controller, it didn’t take long after his first discovery flight for those plans to change. Austin Received his private pilot certificate shortly after high school but felt the need to do more, he then enlisted in the United States Army as an Aviation Operations Specialist. Austin got to live in South Korea for two years with his wife Brianna, and two dogs Zero and Navi. While living overseas Austin got to travel to many places like the Philippines, and Japan. While all that was awesome, he still missed flying, so after his active-duty service, he went back to flight school and finished all his required certificates to become a certified flight instructor.

In Austin’s free time you can find him fishing, ridding his longboard, enjoying family time, or playing sports like co****le and softball.

This week it's all about night flying! Night flying is a lot of fun and the views can be amazing, but it also comes with its own set of unique challenges. Visibility, ground reference, cockpit resources, and lighting... literally everything about flying changes when the sun goes down. So if it's been a minute since you've been in the plane at night, don't miss this week's episode of Behind The Prop!

Our Story

Behind every business is a story. That idea rings true with United Flight Systems (UFS). Bob Watts was originally a partner at a major law firm in downtown Houston. However, he decided to leave his career and follow his passion for flying, taking over what was Merriworth Aviation in 1989 and creating United Flight Systems. His dream was to improve the flight school and provide quality training for pilots seeking a career in airline training. Through 2018, UFS has graduated 100’s of student who have gone on to a career as pilots for major airlines. It is interesting how history repeats itself. As of May of 2018, Bobby Doss and Matt Shaunty stepped back from their careers and allowed their passion for aviation to become a larger part of their life, taking the reigns at United Flight Systems and carrying on Bob’s legacy. All three men prove that a devotion to flight can easily be turned into more -a career and long-term avocation. The goal for us at UFS is always to create an environment where individuals feel that they are being provided with the resources that not only teach them to fly, but develop a love for aviation.

For those considering a career or flying or to just follow a passion, there are many advantages to choosing United Flight Systems. We are the only school at David Wayne Hooks Airport that has a full motion simulator. This allows students and licensed pilots to develop further training on the ground when weather conditions may not be ideal for flying. Jeannie’s Pilot Shop, a full pilot supply shop, allows for direct access to the materials an individual may need to start their journey as a pilot. Additionally, there are 11 planes in our active fleet and the future looks bright for refurbishing them to provide a higher quality experience through UFS. Another advantage of choosing UFS is the pull through parking for our planes, which many flight schools lack. It guarantees that students do not have to move planes by hand, a huge plus when beginner students lack a comfort level or familiarity with the planes. Our philosophy of “training to maximum proficiency, not minimum standards” will always ring true even through a change in ownership. Our facility, resources, well-maintained aircraft, and highly qualified instructors provide a remarkable experience in aviation. We welcome you to join us for a special flying and learning program you are sure to enjoy!
