Windy City Flyers is a flight school and aircraft rental club located at Chicago Executive Airport (PWK) in Wheeling, IL. Established in 1991, Windy City Flyers has trained thousands of pilots through our structured program that allows our students to move at their own pace. Our full-time staff includes FAA certified flight instructors, management team, and Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics. With the largest fleet in the Chicagoland area available for flight training and rental, we recognize the need for superior customer service and expert aircraft maintenance.
