"A Division of Seaplanes R Fun"

The Law of Primacy: Learn it right the first will serve you well.

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

Attention customers, SML Aviation was bought by a new owner on November 1st, 2017. Please bear with us as we update our policies and make adjustments. Effective immediately, all solo renters must have non-owners insurance with at least 30,000 dollars of coverage. SML Aviation will continue to provide flight instruction, but will be expanding our operations in seaplane ratings, tail wheel endorsements, and sight seeing tours. Also we are looking into operating out of Brookneil airport one or two days a week. If you have any question, email us at or call 802-233-9312. 

Pilots come from all walks of life with a variety of reasons for wanting to learn to fly. Some for the simple joy of flight, others a career.

SML Aviation has a long and prestigious history in aviation and flight training, with literally decades of experience we have provided hundreds of pilots the quality training and direction needed to achieve their aviation goals. Our distinctive focus on safety and exceptional customer service is within easy reach of everyone in the Roanoke, Smith Mountain Lake, Lynchburg and Blacksburg areas. 

SML Aviation provides quality educational facilities, experienced and highly trained staff, modern aircraft and simply the finest flight training available in general aviation today.
