The staff is unbelievably responsive and easy to work with. It is the easiest school in town to schedule training/aircraft at the times I want. Their planes are extremely well maintained and almost never down thanks to their own mechanic. Their prices are the most reasonable in town. Lastly, Johnson County Executive is the most delightful airport in the metro. I almost never sit on the taxiway waiting for traffic. Also the tower controllers are kind and great to work with.

I'm really enjoying my time with "Ish" at Empyrean Aero getting current again after 20 years away from flying. He's taking my goals and developing a plan "with" me, that's making both of us feel confident in my return to flying. He's a great instructor that enjoys what he does. I'd recommend them to anyone interested in taking flying lessons.

Can’t recommend Empyrean highly enough. They’ve got a modern fleet, great instruction, and very fair prices. Would highly suggest giving them a try.

Great airplanes and awesome instructor.

Love flying here. They take good care of their aircraft. The instructors are top notch and scheduling is easy and convenient. And the airport is centrally located in Johnson County.

Great flight school, small but growing. Very friendly and responsive to questions. I'm already a private pilot so mostly just renting airplanes once or twice per month. Will use Empyrean for my flight review this year, and if/when I decide to go for advanced ratings, I won't think twice about calling Ismael to set up a training schedule.

Had my checkout flight and it was a great experience. Looking forward to getting some great flights over the next several months.


This is the best flight school in the Kansas City area. Great people and a great environment there!

These guys are the best! They do what’s best for their students, and don’t just try to line their pockets. I wish I could give more stars!
