Final approach to RWY 17 at the Marion Airport is just 23 feet wide. Landing here is a thrilling experience even for veteran aviators.
P&N Flight & Charter was founded in 1966 by Jan Walton and her late husband, Perry. Jan is still an active Certified Flight Instructor at P&N, having logged thousands of hours in fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.
Countless professional pilots with careers in aviation trained at P&N Flight & Charter and many stop back in to share their fond memories of learning to fly at Marion. Some will even radio a "hello" from commercial airliners some 35,000 feet above the airport. Learning to fly is something special and learning to fly with great people at a unique airport adds to the magic of your flying experience.
There is an ambitious vision for the future of P&N Flight & Charter - a goal of creating an aviation learning destination for aspiring pilots in the Midwest, all while preserving the charm and legacy that was created by Jan and Perry.
What does this mean for you? It means everything. The team is committed to providing an excellent atmosphere for learning everything there is to know about flight, all while remembering to have fun in the process.
What makes P&N so unique?
- The 23-foot wide runway at the Marion Airport: This proves to be a challenge at first, but if you can land here, you can land anywhere with confidence. Independence, however, has a little more room with a 100-foot runway.
- Marion, Clinton, and Independence are non-towered airports: No clearances to wait for and less fuel burned on the ground. You can park your car, get checked-in and be airborne in 10 minutes! Dubuque is a Class Delta and is controlled from 0600-2000 local time.
- Full-time instructors: The availability and flexibility of our instructors make it a lot easier to find time to fly and fly often.
