About Us

Sandhills Fliers (SF) Flight School was formed in 2014 by several retired military pilots, an engineer, and a doctor. Their passion for sharing the gift of aviation with Fort Bragg's wounded warriors from USSOCOM's Care Coalition and the Veterans Airlift Command (VAC) was the catalyst for what Sandhills Fliers is today.

Our Squadron of Beechcraft, Mooney, Cessna, and Vulcanair platforms allows current and future pilots to broaden their experience and increase their piloting confidence.

We take great pride in our reputation of Integrity, Service, Excellence, Trust, and Confidence.

We uphold the highest saftey standards, and vet and screen every potential member. Our professional CFI's take great pride in and care of all of our students, aircraft, and support equipment.

Sandhills Fliers is located at Moore County Airport, KSOP, in Pinehurst/Southern Pines, North Carolina. We are one hour South of Raleigh, and two and a half hours East of Charlotte, by vehicle.

We look forward to meeting you to see how we can help you set and achieve your aviation goals.

We are excited to share the joy and freedom of aviation with you.


The goals of our flight training program are safety, quality, and fun - which is why we are the best option for those looking for individualized flight training to reach their aviation goals, achieve credentials and discover the joy of aviation.
