Owned and operated by a naval officer and veteran with 15 years of flying experience, Lyons Creek Aviation was founded as an independent part 61 flight training option on the Virginia peninsula to provide an affordable alternative to anyone wanting to advance their skills in aviation.  Lyons Creek Aviation places a particular emphasis on those with full time jobs and other time commitments, and provides flexible hours for flight training. The owner is also an experimental aircraft owner and builder, with substantial experience in the Van's series of aircraft.  As a consequence of this experience, the owner is also happy to provide instruction in experimental amateur built aircraft.

Lyons Creek Aviation exists to provide a flight training option for anyone that wants to avoid the regimen of a part 141 school, and to keep their aviation training costs to a minimum.  Lyons Creek Aviation is based on the Peninsula, with services offered to PHF, PVG, SFQ, and CPK.  Ground school work can be done onsite, or wherever may be convenient for a student.  We offer a flat rate of $50/hr for any certificate program when flying in your airplane. 

Lyons Creek Aviation operates out of Atlantic Aviation, the premier FBO at PHF, and works in collaboration with Curtis Eads flight school when aircraft rental may be necessary.  You will not find better equipped, better maintained aircraft anywhere in the Hampton Roads area.  When it comes to flight training, you will not find a better appointed facility, with better aircraft, in the best possible training environment, anywhere else in Hampton Roads.
