US Sport Aircraft announced today that it is rebranding to Thrust Flight. In addition, the company’s flight academy division announced a significant expansion of flight training by rolling out their “Zero Time to Airline” career program. The Thrust Flight Avionics division also announced an exclusive partnership relationship with Dynon and Avidyne Avionics for the installation of advanced avionics systems in Part 23 certified aircraft.
Patrick Arnzen, CEO, says “Our heritage started by focusing on the light sport market. However, we now offer products and services for most of the broader general aviation landscape. We feel rebranding as Thrust Flight will better showcase our new offerings and programs.”
One exciting program announced today, is the “Zero Time to Airline” program. Chief Flight Instructor, Liz Brassaw, describes it as “a clear, proven path for people to start from zero experience in an airplane through rapidly achieving their career goal of working as an airline pilot. We train through all the certifications and flight hours required and then connect graduates with one of our airline partners to bridge the gap between training and career. Included in the program is our fleet of modern glass and air-conditioned aircraft, as well as our world class Flight Instructor Academy designed to quickly get pilots working as Flight Instructors, allowing them to get paid and offset some training costs as they build hours and experience.” Thrust Flight's CFO, Stuart Stevenson, said "Training can be accomplished under both parts 61 and 141, and eligible candidates can utilize veterans and certain educational benefits towards training. This, plus earnings as a flight instructor make flight training more affordable and efficient."
Thrust Flight’s Avionics division announced that they have partnered with Dynon and Avidyne Avionics and are now the premier dealer/installer of the new Dynon Skyview HDX system. The HDX, when paired with Avidyne’s IDF series of GPS/NAV/COM's will transform a more seasoned aircraft into a fully upgraded, technically advanced aircraft with unsurpassed VFR/IFR capability. An integrated 2020 compliant, ADS-B In and Out solution, auto pilot and engine monitoring is also available. This suite is already STC approved for the Cessna 172, with approvals pending for the Piper Seneca and Saratoga, Beach Bonanza and Baron, and many more singles and twins to follow. Patrick Arnzen, CEO, says “Most pilots are aware of the safety advantages a technically advanced aircraft can offer. Our program installs an affordable, user friendly system that is custom designed to fit your aircraft panel in the most visually appealing and practical way.”
Thrust Flight’s headquarters are located in Addison, Texas with more locations scheduled to open in the third and fourth quarters of 2018. Thrust Flight can be found online at www.thrustflight.com.
