Flight instructor speaks about flying lessons for Mercer County

By Daniel Arens Many people, if given the chance, would jump on the opportunity to learn how to fly a plane. But the cost and time required for such an opportunity can be daunting. This Saturday, a flight instructor from Bismarck came to the Mercer County Regional Airport to address these concerns and see if there was any interest from local residents in having flight instruction provided. Roughly 10 years ago, a similar effort to bring an instructor only generated one person willing to pay the cost of training. This year, nearly 20 people attended the meeting, with a wider amount of interest in making something work. Garhett Lenger spoke to the cost concern, saying that the total cost of the training was around $7,000, but that there were ways to handle the cost. He talked about forming small groups that could split costs for a plane among them. These groups could not grow too large, as additional fees would be administered, so Lenger recommended roughly four people to a group if possible.
