Sioux Gateway Airport Adds Flight Training

Revv Aviation Brings SkyHawks to  Siouxland

Revv Aviation has begun operations at its 10th campus in Sioux City, Iowa out of the Sioux Gateway Airport.

The firm seems to be ramping up operations everywhere it can, citing the greater industry's need for 2/3 of a million new pilots over the next 2 decades. Revv followed the usual path, building a foundation on Part 61 training until they got critical mass in funding, instructors, office space, and fleet size to take the next step.

“When we started here in Sioux Gateway Airport, we had one instructor, one aircraft, two years and since then, now we’re up to three aircraft, three instructors and 25 students,” said Chief Instructor Jerome Howard. Now that they're in the swing of things, they've begun offering a Part 141 curriculum, too. “Getting into aviation at this point, whether you’re going it on your own or through a collegiate program is a very opportune time.”

The company operates Cessna 172P Skyhawks out of the field, IFR equipped with KXI55's and an IL3 Lynx as standard. Upon opening, their wet rate appears to be $165/hr, though intro flights can be had in classic flight school style for a cool $99 (par for the course in post-2020 flight training).
