Sparrow Flying Club is Arkansas’s premier flying club and aircraft rental company

We have the areas only Light Sport Aircraft rental and offer the state’s only access to Sport Pilot training. Our emphasis is on safety and the positive promotion of General Aviation. We have been in business since 2006 and David, Charles and Nathan have a combined aviation experience of over 60 years in flying and instructing with civilian, military, corporate, airline and charter.

Different missions, Different Needs, Different Planes

Lets face it, flying is expensive.  The cost of learning to fly as well as maintaining your proficiency is steep enough.  Add the cost of owning, insuring and maintaining one aircraft for training and later for personal use, can make the dollars skyrocket.  Additionally, the plane you purchase to train in will not most likely be the plane that will meet your mission needs later.

Not all needs of all club members fit one plane, therefore Sparrow offers the advantage of having a selection of aircraft available.  As a Sparrow Club member, you get the opportunity to schedule and fly any aircraft you or your instructor are qualified to fly.

Members also get access to the club’s Private Pilot ground school taught by one of our Certified Flight Instructors (CFI) every Saturday morning at no additional charge — a $400 value!!

What are you waiting for? Contact us and start flying today!
