Let's Get Started

Our Total Immersion Flights are designed to totally immerse you in flying. Not to be confused with a scenic flight, our Total Immersion Flights will challenge you to do everything a pilot does, before, during and after a normal flight. You fly with a certified flight instructor who will walk you through every step of the process and talk candidly with you about what it takes to become a pilot.

Welcome to Chicago Executive Flight School!

Chicago Executive Flight School (CEFS) is Chicagoland’s #1 flight school. Located at the Chicago Executive Airport, we have trained students to become pilots since 1994. CEFS has truly stood above the rest, focusing 100% on quality, safety, and time and we are an approved Cessna Pilot Center so you can be assured you are receiving the best training available.

Aside from our flight training, CEFS offers a variety of Total Immersion Flights. There is no better way to see Chicago! But our flights are not just scenic flights, they actually put you in command. You fly the plane with a certified instructor and are challenged by your instructor to do everything a pilot does before, during and after a normal flight. It’s not an experience to be missed!

We utilize the latest technology in the course of your training including GoPro Cameras and Foreflight Apps for Pilots to ensure you the best possible flight training.

If you are interested in renting a plane, we have a fleet to choose from and our planes are kept in perfect working order by a team of full-time mechanics. A trip to Wisconsin, an excursion to Mackinac Island, or a relaxing flight around Chicago, we are your rental source.
