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.

At the core of all of our programs we recognize the value of time while maintaining the highest level of safety.

Our vision of aviation’s future is inclusive, diverse, and innovative. We are One Crew. We also recognize that although aviation plays an important role in our global economy, it can have a negative impact on our environment. Flex Air is committed to doing our part by launching one of the world’s first all-electric, zero-emissions training fleets, which our students will begin flying by 2023.

MORE ABOUT US

We train in a structured environment using electronic scheduling systems, crew resource management (CRM), and a safety management system (SMS).

Crazy to believe it was six years ago we had over 80 aircraft on the ramp to cheer on K-State v Auburn. You can also see the construction had just began on the terminal. Not the scoreboard that we wanted, but we loved seeing the planes! ...
