About Us
Flying C Aviation was established in late 2004 with the intent of building multiple hangar complexes at the Searcy Municipal Airport in Searcy Arkansas to house the growing aviation fleet located around central Arkansas. The first of these hangars was a 60 x 90 completed in 2005. In 2006, Flying C Aviation added a 12,000 sq. ft. T-hangar facility in the south east ramp area of the airport which is capable of supporting eleven aircraft, three offices and a pilot lounge. 2011 Was an exciting year for Flying C Aviation as we added an additional 12 T-hangars, two offices, and two 65 x 75 hangar complexes. A portion of this expansion included enticing Aircraft Interior Services, a certified aviation repair station, to base its operations at the Searcy Municipal Airport.

Flying C Aviation's latest expansion took place in 2015 with the acquisition of a 10,000 sq ft facility that formerly housed Bulldog Aviation. Flying C Aviation has moved all flight school operations into the complex as well as provided private for lease offices for aviation businesses and also found a maintenance group, Elite Aviation, to provide top service and support to our flight school, corporate aircraft, and the local aviation community.

Since 2008, Flying C Aviation has continued the growth of general aviation through training of new pilots. Our goal is to interest and train new pilots as well as gain experience and ratings for current pilots. Flying C Aviation is advancing our training programs by offering single,multi-engine training and rentals. We have modernized our training programs with new simulators that offer legal means to log IFR training and currency. We also offer specialty training in tailwheel and sea plane aircraft. Additionally, Flying C Aviation is a proud supporter of the Young Eagles program and the Searcy EAA Chapter who offer this awesome experience for every fifth grader who goes through Searcy Public Schools.
