About

Now at your service, Wichita’s finest flying club, Compass Rose Aviation!  Rose is the Air Capital’s “hottest” flying girl sharing the thrill of flight in a way the area has never experienced.  A curtain raiser for all to see, the new glamour girl is a dream-come-true.   Meeting the needs of her community, Compass Rose was constructed to exceed the desires many of us have only dreamed when gazing to the heavens above.  Let Rose show you the way!

You are ready for the real thing so take your first step in becoming an aviator with the queen of the sky.   Compass Rose Aviation was developed by a pilot for pilots with a vision of offering quality and safe aircraft at affordable prices.  Focusing on the positive qualities of aircraft ownership, but without the hassles, Rose offers its members so much more.   Compass Rose Aviation sets a new standard for the next generation of flying clubs.

Rose salutes the other flying clubs supporting general aviation.  Is Compass Rose the only flying club, no, but let her differences prove she is worthy of a relationship.  Only Rose provides multiple aircraft, commercial insurance, a quality facility, online scheduling, a friendly flying environment, fuel discounts, quality instructors, fair fares, and endless social enjoyment for her most prized asset, you!  There are no boundaries in the air, nor in the hearts of pilots, so for work or play, fly the Compass Rose way!

…so some have asked why “Compass Rose” for the name.  A compass rose is a figure on a compass, map, nautical chart, or monument used to display the orientation of the cardinal directions-North, East, South and West-and their intermediate points.  Our main gal, Rose, loves the attention she gets when everything points in her direction!
