Why Us?

BPFS is conveniently located just outside of Honolulu International (HNL) airspace at the John Rodgers Field (JRF) in Kalaeloa, previously the Barbers Point Naval Air Station. The airspace is less congested than at Honolulu and offers private pilot candidates a less apprehensive environment to train in. Time spent getting airborne is also reduced significantly because of less air traffic. This provides a more cost-effective environment to train; you spend more of your time in the air than on the ground waiting to depart. Furthermore, the amount of time it takes to enter designated training airspace is also much lower.

John Rodgers Field (Kalaeloa Airport) will provide you with very challenging crosswinds while earning your wings. Rest assured that while learning to fly here will challenge your abilities during your initial training, it will also reward you with an increased level of competency that will prepare you for future flying. BPFS offers flight training in the rigid and proven Cessna platforms and we take meticulous care of our aircraft. Our rates are very competitive and we offer a 24-hour a day open door policy and provide a hospitable environment for friends and family. Call us today and we will be happy to give you a tour of our school and facilities.*


* Unlike Honolulu, access to our flight school requires you to pass through a security checkpoint as you will be crossing live taxiways to reach the classroom office. Our initial meeting, therefore, must be a meet-and-greet. Please make sure to call ahead to make an appointment.
