Center Hill Lake at 3,500 ft

The only thing better than being on Center Hill Lake is being over Center Hill Lake. Have you wondered what this place looks like from a bird’s eye view? Well, now you can find out with Tennessee Flying Machines! Center Hill Lake is a large lake. In fact, the lake is 64 miles long covering an area of 18,220 acres. With roughly 415 miles of shoreline and rolling ridge tops, this place is really something to see!  Tennessee Flying Machines offers aerial tours of the lake, Burgess Falls, and other waterfalls. If you’re really wanting to get the lay of the land, you can also tour Cookeville and Sparta, Tennessee.  This exhilirating experience is perfect for visitors and locals alike. Gain a new perspective! You can even fly in an open cockpit in one of the planes – two of which are actually World War II aircraft!

If you fall in love with being in the sky or want to learn more about aviation, Tennessee Flying Machines also offers lessons!

By the way, your instructor and one of the pilots is Aaron Tippin. Yes, you read that right! Aaron Tippin as in the legendary country music star with major hits including “Kiss This” “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the Radio” and countless others!

Aaron Tippin & fellow pilot, Sarah Tippin, offer flight training for both beginner and advanced pilots. Tennessee Flying Machines also provide discovery flights – flights intended to familiarize students with the airplane, airport, and the flying environment.
