About Us

We are young Aviators ranging from airline to recreation pilots. Some of our members got their wings right here at Republic Airport, and now fly for airlines. They now are here with us as flight and ground instructors.


We are here to now, to give back. We believe that we can help others realize their dreams, and inspire others to pursue their goals, whatever they may be, all while we introduce them to the world of aviation.


We offer discovery flights for beginners and primary/advance flight training for the more advanced.


GEAR UP FLIGHT CLUB is located at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, one of the busiest Class D airspaces in the New York City area. This affords you a lot of experience within the real world of flying.


So come learn to fly with us and earn your pilots’ certificate or come discover the skies.
