The operator of Skydive Alabama in Cullman is behind a new flight school open for business at Huntsville International Airport.
Revolution Flight School launched earlier this month in a facility also home to FlyQuest on 2002 Houston Goodson Way in Huntsville. Owner Paul Rossouw, an ex-military parachute regiment soldier and three-time Skydiving World Championship medalist, runs the school with general manager Chris Burns.
The company provides flight, pilot, and airline training, discovery flights, and sport and commercial flying for a wide range of people, including novice and advanced pilots. Clients can also achieve sport pilot, private pilot, commercial pilot and air transport certification at Revolution Flight School, which offers maintenance and plane rentals for licensed aviators.
“We can address just about any need within the aviation world, as well as manage airplanes for other people who are already pilots,” Rossouw told AL.com.
Burns said Revolution offers a Cessna 172, a four-seat, fixed-wing aircraft perfect for training inexperienced pilots, as well as a Piper Arrow, a faster, more complex aircraft with retractable gear. The Beechcraft Baron, a multi-engine plane, is also available for rent to qualified pilots.
