Middletown Regional Flight Training Institute Now Open at Middletown Regional Airport’s Hook Field
Under new ownership, the flight school at Middletown Regional Airport’s Hook Field re-opened as Middletown Regional Flight Training Institute on February 18, 2010.
Formerly Empower Aviation, the school was purchased early this year by Chief Flight Instructor Tim Epperhart. Making the transition to MRFTI with Epperhart are instructors Frances Mead and Kevin Moe, also formerly of Empower Aviation.
In addition to their modern classroom environment, MRFTI also offers aircraft rentals, available seven days a week to accommodate any training schedule.
When asked how he felt after the purchase, Epperhart stated, "I've been given a great opportunity. We are located on a great airport. I have a great staff and we have a great program that can help people achieve their dreams of flying. I have been given a number of breaks and lots of help from my friends over the years to get me here. I haven't forgotten it. This is my chance to pay some of that forward."
