At one time we had primary flight training centers at five different airports and operated more than 100 airplanes, including several DC-3s and an AT-6. We were busy, but we were barely making money. We finally fixed that by limiting our primary flight training to the FlightSafety Academy in Vero Beach, Florida, and restricting admission to people who intended to become professional pilots. Since then the Academy has become one of the premier primary schools in the world, and airlines from Europe, Asia and the United States have been sending ab initio students there steadily for thirty years.
