Appalachian Air Service has been the best thing that has ever happened to my flying addiction/hobby. I always hoped that someone would invest the time and money to open a first class flight school at the Mercer Co. Airport, and did they ever.
Now I no longer have to travel up to a hour and a half to rent a aircraft or take a flight lesson. Also the aircraft here are top of the line. Appalachians Cessna 172 is probably the nicest plane I have flown to date, and can not wait to get in that beautiful multi engine.
If you ever thought about learning to fly, or just to charter a aircraft, call them they will not let you down.
