Default Greg Koontz Aerobatics @ Sky Country Lodge

Sounds like a good place (Asheville, AL) to get some aerobatic instruction. Anybody have experience to share? Thanks, John

Greg is a great guy. He and his wife Cora are wonderful hosts and they have very nice house/ lodge on a 4000 ft grass runway in a beautiful setting.

A friend and I flew down to Greg's for a weekend of acro training in 2013 and had a great time. His house is set up nicely to operate as a B&B, and Greg loves to fire up the grill and cook. He spends time on the ground briefing the flights so you can get the most out of your time in the air. His instruction in the air is top notch. (I'm still lousy at sustained inverted flight, though. My problem, not his.) To top it all off, along with being a superb pilot, Greg is just flat out fun to visit. Highly recommended!
