AURORA, Ill. May 18, 2022 – With a flight school in Council Bluffs that serves more than 250 students, Revv Aviation, formerly Advanced Air, is expanding its operations on June 1 to Eppley Airfield in Omaha.
The expansion allows for advanced aviation training, including multi-engine instruction and tower communications skills in addition to beginning flight lessons.
“We have about 120 students who fly as part of the University of Nebraska-Omaha Part-141 flight program, and this will make it more convenient and accessible for some of those students,” said Jerome Howard, Chief Flight Instructor for Revv Aviation. “It also allows for advanced flight instructions where students learn proper tower and ground controller communications in a more dense flying environment.”
Revv Aviation is leasing offices at the TAC Air fixed-base operator (FBO), at 3737 Orville Plaza, at Eppley.
“We’re going to start with two Cessna 172 trainers and two multi-engine Piper Seminoles,” said Howard.
Students can begin signing up for lessons immediately by calling 712-314-2444 or by emailing [email protected].
In addition to this expansion, Revv Aviation offers a full suite of aviation services at its Midwest FBO hubs, including Council Bluffs, Sioux City, Davenport and Muscatine, Iowa; Janesville, Wis.; and Aurora and Schaumburg, Ill.
“We have experienced great success with our flight school in Council Bluffs and see tremendous potential to expand pilot training to all current and want-to-be aviators in the Omaha Metropolitan Area,” said Guy Lieser, Revv Aviation CEO. “Our pilot training is a signature phase of service offerings we plan to offer at Eppley Airfield. Our goal is to expand flight training offerings to accommodate the ever-impending demand for pilots, mechanics and technicians.”
“Having Revv at Eppley will make it a lot more convenient for many of our flight students,” said Scott Vlasek, faculty member at the Aviation Institute at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. “Besides being convenient, the tower communications at Eppley will fulfill a critical aspect of pilot instruction.”
Revv Aviation is one of nine companies in the CL Enterprises family investment portfolio. CL Enterprises mantra is “Small Towns. Big Ideas” and has a mission to help revitalize communities by providing living-wage careers and good paying jobs.
