To most people, the sky is the limit. To those who love aviation, the sky is home.

Attention Customers

SML Aviation is under new ownership. The parent company, Seaplanes R Fun Inc. Purchased SML Aviation from Brant Howell in November of 2017.

In order to provide our customers with the best flying experience, we are making a few improvements. One of which is that we no longer require a non-owners policy. However, we advise renters to purchase one for their own piece of mind.

Please bear with us during the transition. Our goal is to make your experience as pleasurable as possible while experiencing the marvels of flight.


Please contact the school manager, Matt Short, at 540-904-1107 during business hours or his cell at 802-233-9312. We accept credit cards, checks and cash.

Our motto is simple:
"Promote a safe and fun learning experience."
Keeping things simple in a complex world is half the battle. We are all about simple.

Safe flying,

Jason Grieff
