Deerfield, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/17/2014 -- Pilgrim Aviation is expanding in Massachusetts by adding a new base of operation for flight training in Taunton. An authorized Cessna Pilot Center headquartered at Plymouth Municipal Airport (PYM) with additional flight school operations at Nantucket Memorial Airport (ACK), Pilgrim is now opening offices on 2 Westcoat Drive at Taunton Municipal Airport (TAN).
Providing flight training, airplane rentals, scenic flights, and FBO services, Pilgrim aims to deliver the very best aviation experience for its expanding customer base. With a company-owned fleet of 11 aircraft, including a 2013 Cessna Skycatcher Light Sport airplane, a RedBird LD flight simulator, and a Piper Cherokee equipped with hand controls for mobility impaired pilots, the flight school is uniquely equipped to meet the needs of a greater cross-section of the aviation community. “This is an exciting opportunity for us, making our top-notch flight services available to a much broader area of pilots, students, and guests.” said Joe Ricci, Pilgrim Aviation co-owner. “As a Cessna Pilot Center, we know the value of maintaining high standards for a safe, quality aviation experience. It's important to have a place like this to provide an opportunity that people in the area might not otherwise have. Stop in and check us out today!” Ricci and business partner Gerald Rosen opened Pilgrim’s first location in Plymouth in early 2013. A Part 61 flight school, they eventually plan to add charter flight services for passengers.
The new base for flight training in Taunton is officially open for business this month.
A FREE 15 week Private Pilot Ground School will be offered on Thursday nights, and an official Grand Opening Event is being planned this spring at the airport. Students who want to pursue a pilot's license can enroll and start training immediately. Those who already have a license can also rent Pilgrim Aviation's airplanes.
