    Has anyone gone through Blue Ridge Sport Flight in Hendersonville, NC? I am interested in doing his 2 week accelerated course. I have already completed my written and medical I just don't have time to do an actual course. Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

    Also interested in hearing about some experience. My parents live in Hendersonville and this would be convenient to get into some mountain flying plus possibly his accelerated instrument.

    Email them. They are quick to respond. However, I don't have any direct experience with them.

    Sent my wife to them a few years back for a tailwheel endorsement. She enjoyed the experience. I think their prices have gone up in the last few years; only about 5-8 years ago they used to offer the BFR/TW for $595 I believe. Our limited experience with them was positive and I would go back without hesitation.

    I met with the owner prior to starting flight training on a day he happened to be in town. I liked him, but I ended up going to Florida to start my training.

    I trained back in 2016 at Lockwood. I wanted to train in something similar to what I was planning to buy, which was a Tecnam high wing. At the time, Blue Ridge was training sport pilots in an Aeronca Champ, and Lockwood was training in a Tecnam P92.
