Entry couldn't be more straightforward. Here's what you need to do:

  1. Sign-Up: Enroll for flight training at ActivePILOT within two weeks of visiting our school.
  2. Register: Head over to ActivePILOT.com and sign up for the SkyMaster Challenge.
  3. Pay to Play: A nominal entry fee of $15 gets you in the game and comes with a stylish ActivePILOT t-shirt.
  4. Be Social: Post and tag 5 videos on your social media accounts featuring you and specific flight training elements—all while proudly wearing your ActivePILOT t-shirt.
    1. One Pre-Flight Walk-Around: Safety is paramount in aviation, and this starts with a thorough pre-flight inspection. We want to see you in action, conducting a meticulous walk-around of your aircraft. Check the control surfaces, look over the landing gear, and inspect the fuel and oil levels. This is your opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to safety and show off your growing aviation knowledge. Your video should not only capture the steps you take but also provide a brief explanation of why each step is critical.
    2. One Flight Training Maneuver with You as the Pilot: Show us your piloting skills in action! This could be anything from executing a perfect steep turn to mastering the art of slow flight. This is your moment in the cockpit, your hands on the controls, as you perform a flight training maneuver. Talk us through what you're doing and why, so viewers can see you're not just going through the motions but truly understanding the principles behind the maneuver.
    3. One Landing with You as the Pilot: The landing is one of the most critical phases of flight, and we want to see you nail it. Show us your approach, your flare, and that moment of triumph when the wheels gently touch down on the runway. This video will exhibit your ability to integrate various flying skills—airspeed control, descent rate, and alignment with the runway—to accomplish a safe and smooth landing.
    4. One "Best View" from an Airplane with You as the Pilot: Flying isn't just about the technical skills; it's also about the unparalleled experiences and breathtaking views you can't get anywhere else. Capture that one moment when the world looks incredible from your vantage point in the sky. Whether it's a stunning sunset, a beautiful coastline, or a sweeping view of the mountains—show us why flying is your passion.
    5. One Video Explaining Why You Chose ActivePILOT, Featuring Your Favorite Airplane: Finally, we want to know why you chose ActivePILOT for your flight training journey. Is it our expert instructors, state-of-the-art fleet, or something else that sets us apart in your eyes? Feature your favorite airplane from our fleet in this video. Describe what makes this aircraft special to you and how it complements your training goals.
  5. Refer Friends: Refer at least 3 friends who may be interested in embarking on their flight training journey. Signup is not required! Providing a name, email address, and phone number will suffice.
  6. Write a Review: Write a review for ActivePILOT Flight Academy on Google to share your flight and training experience with our community. You can write about your decision-making process to join ActivePILOT and the journey you have had with us so far.
