Van Anda Aviation, making it so easy to rent an airplane you'll feel like you own it! We maintain a fleet of airplanes placed at three different airports in the Central Florida / Orlando area. Our primary focus is airplane rental - we are not a flight school. We take care of our pilots first, not an instruction schedule. Most of our airplanes can be rented 24 hours a day, and we are very easy to work with when it comes to overnight rental as well. Take friends for a ride or go on a weekend trip in our nicely appointed, clean, and well cared for fleet of Cessna 172s.
