Flight Student, rusty pilot or simply fly the Caribbean?

Whether you are ready to learn to fly, upgrade your rating, need to brush up your skills or want to fly with your FAA or EASA license in a different country why not above lush nature, turquoise waters and different island nations in the Caribbean? 

The Caribbean offers a variety of airports, from big international hubs to small airstrips. Plus you can learn to file flight plans, border crossing and much more with an experienced FAA CFII instructor. 

Should you be in need for a FAA Flight Review and be in the region, no need to fly to the mainland USA.  


We offer tailor made solutions for students as well as skilled pilots in the Caribbean.
Our team comprises experienced Pilots and Teaching Professionals. All of us are living in the Caribbean or in Florida. We are familiar with the Bahamas and Caribbean since more than 25 years.


Arno Hess - founder and
CFI/CFII of Flightschool4u

I am an experienced Pilot and Teaching Professional, currently living in the Dominican Republic, and can help to shape your skills and perspective in aviation as well as becoming a safe pilot. Whether it’s your future career or your hobby, I will help you develop the habits and skills to effectively deal with the challenges you may encounter while flying airplanes. I am regularly flying in the Caribbean and Bahamas. I am a hands-on pilot and well versed in the mechanics of an airplane.

Since 2016 we rebuilt our Beach Houses on the beautiful beach 'Playa Bonita', Samana Peninsula, and converted it into Vacation Rentals. It is a laid back place, ideal for flying-friends, students and pilots and their partners – check it here:  Playa Bonita Beach Houses, listed on Airbnb.

The Caribbean from above

The Caribbean and the Bahamas seen from above are simply amazing. Both regions offer completely different impressions, and not one Caribbean island is alike the other.
