No matter the ultimate goal – recreational flying or a career in aviation – anyone, at any age, can learn to fly, and Sierra Charlie Aviation is committed to providing the best equipment and expert flight instructors to make it happen. No prior flight experience is required.
Our state-of-the-art training facilities are conveniently based at Scottsdale Airport (SDL) in beautiful Scottsdale, AZ, the #1 location in the world for flight training due to the exceptional year-round flying conditions. Pilots here enjoy an average of 360 days a year using Visual Flight Rules (VFR), which means more time in the air for you!
Students learn in new single-engine Cessna 172 Skyhawks, the industry standard for professional flight training. More pilots have earned their wings in a 172 than in any other aircraft in the world.
