Learning to fly in your golden years

14 December 2021   Learn to Fly

Are you a senior who’s interested in learning to fly? If you’re retired and enjoying your golden years then you have the time and the freedom to pursue new hobbies and interests. Learning new things is a great way to stay active, engage your curiosity, and potentially discover a new passion! 

People of all ages dream of learning to fly, and you’ll be pleased to know there is no age limit for taking flying lessons. At Monmouth Jet Center, we have students of all ages, and our students who learn to fly later in life find it incredibly rewarding. If you’re approaching your retirement and have always been curious about taking flying lessons, contact us today to get started!

Why learn to fly as a senior citizen?

    • You have more free time. When you’re younger most of your time is taken up by school and work, leaving you little to no time to explore new hobbies and interests. One of the many benefits of retirement is that you have more free time, and your golden years are ideal for setting off on new adventures like flying lessons.
    • Learning new things helps your mind stay young. While it doesn’t stop the clock, taking flying lessons is a great way to engage your brain in a new activity. Just as you need to exercise your body to keep it in good shape, the same is true of your brain. Learning something new like flying is a great way to stimulate your mind and strengthen cognitive function. 
    • You have more disposable income. You’ve spent decades working hard, you’ve saved up some money, and your kids are grown and out of the house. Now it’s time to spend your money on yourself and try the things you’ve always wanted to do!
    • Monmouth Flight School has been successfully teaching people how to fly since 1993! Because Monmouth Airport sits just outside of crowded New York area airspace designations, it is one of the most relaxed and safe environments you will find in the Tri-state area to pursue your dream of learning to fly. We’ve taught every conceivable type, size, and age of person to fly over the last 20 years, and you better believe we can teach you too!

If you’d like to know more about how seniors can learn to fly at Monmouth Jet Center, or if you have any questions about our executive airport in New Jersey, please contact our team today. You’re never too old to spread your wings and fly with us.
