Icarus Aviation Flight School


About Us

Icarus Aviation began as a way to fill a need.

Mid-Missouri was sorely lacking in any sort of helicopter activity, especially training. The closest helicopter flight schools are at the very edges of the state, not at all convenient for anyone in the middle of the state.

Owner Charles Beesley was in this same predicament when he began training for his helicopter licenses. Charles has been flying helicopters since 2017. He is a disabled Marine Corps veteran with a Bachelor’s Degree in Aviation Management.

Helping with financial aid, student enrollment, and office management is Owner Bethany Beesley. She is a registered Echo Cardiographer and in her downtime helps out with Icarus Aviation’s daily tasks



*All flight hours listed are minimums and do not guarantee you will be ready at that point in your training. All students learn at different rates of speed.
