Read reviews from our previous flight students and find out why Melbourne Flight Training is the best place on the Space Coast to learn to fly!

  • Derek is an amazing instructor who's passion for aviation is contagious! Go fly now! (check the weather first)


  • Great pilot, great instructor, their shop is always striving to provide the best service. Great family business.


  • Throughout my Air Force and civilian flying experience, I have flown with quite a few instructors. Hands down, Derek is the best instructor, both on the ground and in-flight. On the ground, he is knowledgeable, thorough, and prepared. In-flight, he is talented, helpful, and patient. Of all of my instructive experiences, I have never felt calmer or more confident in my own ability than I have with Derek by my side. Thank you, Melbourne Flight Training, for helping me enjoy my time in the sky. You facilitated a wicked awesome experience!


  • I have flown extensively with the owner and he is an excellent pilot. Years of commercial, general, and military support aviation reflect in his professionalism, confidence and experience.
