Q: What's your WEATHER/REFUND POLICY:

A: The Flight Academy will not fly or sanction flight in weather that is unsafe or for which a Cirrus is not rated. The weather at our departure location and our destination must be above published minimums in order for us to launch.

In the event weather does not permit a flight to take place as scheduled, the Flight Academy will attempt to find an alternate route that allows for a safe execution of the flight. If the weather causes the trip to be cancelled, no aircraft time will be billed but instructor fees will still apply. Any additional expenses incurred during the trip due to weather will be the responsibility of the customer.
