FELIX CHIOTA

"Hello, I want to personally thank you for taking a moment to explore Chiota Aviation and what we have to offer you! I started my company in 2013 because of my unquenchable thirst and passion for flight. My affinity for aviation dates back to my days as a little boy. This is because my world would stop whenever I heard or saw an airplane in the sky above me. I’ve been blessed to live in Waco, TX since the fall of 1995. This is when I emigrated from Zimbabwe to pursue my aviation education at both Baylor University and Texas State Technical College.

 

The Waco community has been so generous to me over the years and I have wanted to give back in a tangible way. What better way to do it than offer my adopted hometown opportunities to experience the world of aviation through my flight school? I have personally invested a tremendous amount of time and effort because I believe that Chiota Aviation is your best option for exceptional flight training in clean and modern airplanes that are competitively priced!

 

I’m a professional pilot and have worked for my company for over 16 years, but fear not, I have highly qualified, experienced, and courteous flight instructors in my stead! Chiota Aviation, One stop shop! Does it get any better?

 

When I’m not brainstorming about Chiota Aviation or flying jets around the world, I’m trying to learn guitar, German and Spanish, reading, or I’m at the gym or yoga."
