My name is Mark Langrud and I am a freelance FAA Gold Seal certified flight instructor (CFI/CFII/MEI/IGI) and airline transport pilot based in Lincoln, NE and Broken Bow, NE. I created this website to promote general aviation in Nebraska and my instructing services. I instruct primarily at the Lincoln Municipal Airport and Broken Bow Municipal Airport. I am also available to come to your airport and instruct in your airplane. I have helped dozens of pilots obtain their pilot's licenses and ratings since 2008. In addition to instructing, I am also a King Air and Citation charter pilot with Silverhawk Aviation in Lincoln and I provide piloting services for several clients in Nebraska. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
|1||Private Pilot||A private pilot is one who flies for pleasure or personal business without accepting compensation for flying. It allows the pilot to take command of any aircraft for any noncommercial purpose and gives almost unlimited authority to fly VFR.|
|2||Instrument Rating||An instrument rated pilot will be able to fly in marginal visual or instrument meteorological conditions (low visibility and/or clouds). The instrument rating provides more flexibility for a flight that otherwise would be affected by imperfect weather.|
|3||Commercial Pilot||A commercial pilot may be compensated for flying. Training focuses on a better understanding of aircraft systems and a higher standard of airmanship.|
|4||Multiengine Rating||A multiengine rated pilot can fly airplanes with two engines. Training focuses on improving piloting skills, multiengine aerodynamics, and multiengine and engine-out flight operations.|
