About Us: Overview
Flex Air Aviation was founded by Charlie Copeland on the belief that flight training is more than just how to fly an airplane. It’s about joining a community, becoming a respected professional, and not just a job. Since Flex Air’s humble beginnings of one plane and a family loan in 2016, our company has doubled in size every year following. In 2018, Charlie met Paul Wynns, and decided to team up to take Flex Air to the next level. Together, we added operations in San Diego, CA and Amarillo, TX with the main base location in Manhattan, KS. Through it all, as Flex Air leadership we have yet to lose focus on our belief that every student pilot is an individual. In aviation, every pilot’s work/life goals are unique so therefore the career paths may also vary. At Flex Air, we measure our success by the career opportunities that we create for every student.
We are an aviation company led by minorities and veterans focused on increasing minority representation in every corner of our industry. We seek out industry partners and hiring managers most closely aligned with our core beliefs of equity, inclusion, and diversity. We create career opportunities for all students no matter what their background.
