SCFC Mission Statement

San Carlos Flight Center was founded to provide a great place for SF Bay Area pilots to celebrate aviation.  Our founding principles are Safety, Community, and Adventure, which guide our interactions with all members, customers, vendors, pilots, passengers, competitors, and airport partners, as well as the community at large.

Our aircraft are safe, well-maintained, and fairly priced.  We provide superior service, clean state-of-the-art facilities, and a joyful and respectful environment.

We encourage the social nature of flying by creating events that draw pilots together in a friendly and inclusive environment.  Our business practices are ethical and our organization is transparent.  We reach out to our community and always strive to have a positive impact on the world around us.

We measure our success in flight training not by revenue or flight hours, but solely by our ability to create or develop safe, competent, proficient pilots in the most efficient manner possible.  We structure our training so that we may share the beauty and wonder of the world below from our vantage point aloft, so that others may safely experience the joy and freedom of our unique perspective.

We hope you share in these values – safety, community, and adventure – and that you help us maintain a place where these values can thrive.
