Anderson Aviation, Inc. was founded by Mr. Billie Anderson in 1992. Mr. Anderson obtained his aviation training from the U.S. military as an Army aviator. Mr. Anderson retired from the military and then proceeded to fly helicopters ferrying workers to oil rigs offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. He then returned to Hawaii as a helicopter tour pilot on the neighbor islands. Later Billie became a Captain for Princeville Airways, which is now known as Hawaii Island Air, then he became a Captain for Discovery Airways. He always had a desire to start his own business, so after many years with the airlines Mr. Anderson opened a flight school on Oahu which rapidly became successful, with many students graduating to professional aviation employment and Mr. Anderson eventually becoming an FAA Designated Examiner.
Unfortunately, Billie passed away in May 1999. He is survived by his wife, Nida, and their children, Lisa, Kim, Kelly and Todd. Lisa earned several ratings at this flight school and is now a First Officer for Continental Airlines flying 737’s, 757’s and 767’s. Kelly Anderson has also followed in the steps of his father and is currently operating the flight school. Kelly Anderson is now the Owner and President of Anderson Aviation, Inc. and its Chief Flight Instructor. In Mr. Anderson’s free time he flies as a Captain and Instructor for a local Charter company.
Today Anderson Aviation is still considered to be the PREMIERE Flight Training School in Hawaii. It has an unparalleled flight and safety reputation. Our students are exposed to the highest levels of professional technique and procedures from the very beginning. There is no second best here. Anderson Aviation graduates are never intimidated by “Class B Airspace” or “Big City Airports” as your training is accomplished through the utilization of Hawaii’s International Airport. Many of our students who stay in Hawaii after their training, have gone on to be hired by Island Air, Hawaiian Airlines and other local companies. Others have obtained jobs with several airlines on the mainland.
This flight school followed Mr. Billie Anderson’s philosophy of “Train toward the highest standard possible and produce a good, safe and well-educated pilot”. We are pleased to say that this tradition has continued even though Mr. Anderson is no longer with us. His philosophy still guides this school to this very day. We want students who will uphold this tradition of investing their own personal best in the training we give. Your efforts will be well rewarded.mail order levitracheapzithromax online
