Welcome to Flight School Tulsa

About Us

Airplanes Come in All Shapes and Sizes



My name is Carl Potter, CSP (Certified Safety Professional) and my main job is Founder, CEO, and Associate at the Safety Institute. SafetyInstitute.com is an organization dedicated to preventing every workplace injury. Also, I am a CFII Certified Flight Instructor -Instrument which is a for fun and sometimes profit. I founded Flight School Tulsa and have built a reputation for helping students "finish-up" their rating for Private Pilot, and Instruments. In addition, I am one of the few LSA - Light Sport Instructors in the mid-west United States. 

Many students who have been working hard to earn their Private Pilot or Instrument rating have found their instructor leaving to go to major airlines before they are able to finish-up by taking their check-ride. I also spend much of my time conducting flight reviews, crosswind training, and Wings Program Exercises so pilots can be safer in the air. 

I am experience 172, Piper Series including the "Six", Flight Design CTLS, B-33, B-36, C210s, Grumman Cheetah, and Tigers.  My first personal plane was a 1999 182S which I have near 2000 hours.

I have owned several airplanes and also consult with buyers looking for their first and many times 2nd or 3rd airplane.

  The cutting of the shirttail is a time-honored tradition. This happens when the first solo is complete to signify the student is now PIC or Pilot In Command. For an instructor it is satisfying and fun to ruin a perfectly good shirt.

Flying the River


Many of my students are recreational pilots who love to fly the river and just sightsee.  Flying is one of the most satisfying activities anyone can do.  Becoming a pilot is a real confidence builder and super fun!
