Mach 5 Aviation opened its doors at the Auburn Municipal Airport in 2008 and founded the business on the message posted at the entrance: “SAFETY, INTEGRITY, SERVICE BEFORE SELF, AND EXCELLENCE IN ALL WE DO.” This group is committed to quality flight training and maintenance excellence.
Our students range from Private Pilot, Instrument, and Commercial, to Certified Flight Instructors. We also provide tail-wheel training, scholarship referrals and all levels of aircraft maintenance and management services. Mach 5 organizes many local events throughout the year, including ground schools, fly-outs, safety seminars, air shows, and airport/tower tours.
The coffee is always ready and waiting seven days a week in our clubhouse-type environment. The team prides itself on a staff roster of retired fighter pilots and FAA pros. These highly experienced men and women take their training very seriously while making the process exciting, fun, and unforgettable.
