I’m Chris Palmer, Owner and Founder of Angle of Attack. I’m so excited that you’ve found AOA!

Are you new to the world of aviation, flight simulation, or you’re seeking a real pilot rating? If yes, then you’ve landed at the right place.


“The What”

At Angle of Attack, our mission is to Create Awesome Aviators. We do this primarily by creating engaging, entertaining and educational video, audio and text tutorials for those wanting to learn how to fly.

You can not only learn to fly smaller aircraft, if you’re just starting out, but also get access to a vast library of knowledge to teach you how to handle the Big Boys- Jet Airliners.

Regardless of the medium you like the most, we have something just for you. Video is what we rock at. Who says flight training can’t be enjoyable?

“The Why”

As real pilots, we’ve been around the block. Flight training is difficult, and there is a lot of misinformation out there. Even if there is great information, it’s rarely in a format that is easy to follow.

In other words, flight training on the ground is plagued with being boring, slow, ineffective and the ‘same old thing’.

We decided to do things differently and make training that engages the mind of aviators so you can more fully grasp the concepts being sent your way.

You can turn you brain off with boring material, or turn it on with entertaining lessons.

Our goal is to help you along the way to become an awesome aviator. We have a passionate community and team to help you achieve your greatest aviating potential.

What We Are Not

We are not an FAA Certified Flight School- Most of our training is based on home-based flight simulators, specifically desktop simulators. Flight simulators are an incredible tool for scenario based training, infinite practice, and a place to hone your skills outside actual flight lessons- all from the comfort of your own home.

The training you will receive is from real pilots, with real experience. However, the training itself it not FAA Certified.

We are not your typical aviation resource- We don’t regurgitate the same old information. Most flight courses out there are the same old information, taught in the same order, with different company branding.

We believe in the spirit of the aviator. We believe flying to be an art form. As a result, our material is artful, beautiful, visually and aurally pleasing.

Flight training should be enjoyed, not simply tolerated.

We are not “Youtube Tutorials”- Our training comes from real pilots, who have been around the block. We work hard to make sure we are teaching you in a realistic way- not straight from a text book.

As a result, you won’t find the kind of mistakes in our videos that you will find on Youtube. Because our pilots are licensed and trained, you get actual information and knowledge that can help you on the flight deck.

This give you confidence that you are doing things correctly, just as they are done in the real world.
