High Performance Aviation Moves To Sugar Land, Texas

Flight Training Company Shifts Operations To Sugar Land Regional Airport

In an effort to capture more of the Houston flight training market, High Performance Aviation (HPA) said Wednesday that it is relocating its headquarters from Lone Star Executive Airport  (KCXO) in Conroe, Texas ... its home for the previous two years ... to the Sugar Land Regional Airport (KSGR) in Houston.

HPA is a specialized flight training company that provides transition training, recurrent proficiency training, and insurance checkouts for aircraft owners. The company specializes in Cessna, Columbia, and Cirrus aircraft, equipped with Avidyne or Garmin G1000 glass cockpits. HPA prides itself in designing custom courses for any technically advanced aircraft.
 
The company was founded by its current president, Brandon Ray, in Conroe, Texas at the Lone Star Executive Airport. “HPA has a diverse client base of aircraft owners in the Houston area and throughout the nation," he says. "Sugar Land Regional Airport (KSGR) is one of the top rated airports in the country, featuring many amenities for pilots and aircraft owners.” The relocation to the Sugar Land Regional Airport in Sugar Land, Texas will provide HPA more visibility in the flight training community. “Many of our clients are based at Sugar Land. Our new location will allow us to better serve our current and future clients,” Ray said.
 
When a pilot purchases a new airplane, he or she needs to have training in the plane in order to safely operate it. The different aircraft manufacturers offer this training for new airplanes, but trust companies like HPA to provide insurance checkouts and transition training for used aircraft purchases. Manufacturers also highly encourage pilots to take consistent recurrent training, which HPA specializes in.
 
Most non-pilots are unaware of the insurance requirements involved in aircraft ownership. Insurance companies usually require more frequent training than the FAA. Companies like HPA provide this initial and recurrent training to help aircraft owners meet and exceed insurance requirements.
 
All the HPA instructors on staff are factory trained by Cessna or Cirrus. This means the instructors have been approved by the aircraft manufacturer to provide factory accepted training. The factory approved instructors teach pilots to fly the airplane in the way the manufacturer designed it to be flown. The training follows the FITS (FAA Industry Training Standards) scenario based training philosophy.
