Coast Flight Announces Texas Location Now Open for All Flight Training


San Marcos, Texas, Nov. 30, 2018: Coast Flight, a San Diego-based flight school known for its best-in-industry training standards, has recently expanded to offer full flight training programs in their San Marcos, Texas location.

For over a decade, Coast Flight has held a reputation as one of the country’s top flight schools, turning out pilots who receive the highest number of conditional job offers in the nation. By offering personalized training overseen by high-ranking military leadership and a high instructor-to-student ratio, Coast gives its students an upper hand in their aviation career paths. Coast’s modern fleet of over 45 aircraft ensures students can train on their schedule. With three locations across the United States, Coast Flight is poised to help students at all stages accomplish their goals.

In support of Coast Flight’s vital role in training the world’s next pilots, the Texas location was initially opened to prepare military helicopter pilots for careers with the airlines under its Rotor Transition Program (RTP). Now expanding its reach to all airmen, Coast’s Texas school is proud to announce it is officially open for all flight training. In addition to RTP, Coast’s San Marcos school has expanded its services to include a whole range of professional training, recreational training, and individual flight ratings. Services include training for private pilot license, instrument rating, commercial license, and airline career training, with financing options available.

“The expansion of offerings at our Texas location comes at a historically opportune time,”

says Coast Flight President Bryan Simmons.

“We’re answering the call for quality flight training and advantageous airline partnerships right on the cusp of Boeing’s announcement that 790K new pilots will be needed over the next 20 years.”


Dan Verda, Director of Operations for RTP and General Manager of the Texas site, added,

“By no longer focusing solely on RTP, we can now broaden our scope to reach all aviators, whether civilian or military, just starting out or pursuing a career with the airlines. We have the airline connections, the fleet, and the instructor base to support any stage of a pilot’s journey.”

The Coast Flight-Texas school is located in San Marcos, at 1837 Airport Drive, San Marcos, TX 78666. For an introductory flight or to learn more about how Coast Flight can help you achieve your flight training goals, contact (858) 279-4359.
