Why Choose a Cessna Pilot Center?
Only a limited number of flight schools have achieved approval as Cessna Pilot Centers by the Cessna Aircraft Company, the world leader in General Aviation.
Cessna ensures that these Centers use the Cessna Flight Training System in their training programs to maintain the standards that have made Cessna successful for more than 75 years, with state-of-the-art training facilities and new Cessna Skyhawk 172 aircraft with strict maintenance requirements.
Cessna also requires all Cessna Pilot Centers to provide exceptional customer service and highly trained, professional flight instructors who can guide you through your aviation adventure, from Discovery Flight to purchasing your first plane.
As an approved Cessna Pilot Center, Sierra Charlie Aviation incorporates the Cessna approved curriculum which ensures that you are learning the most up-to-date concepts and that we cover each task that will be tested by an FAA examiner. We also provide aviation insurance to protect you throughout your training.
Why Choose Sierra Charlie Aviation?
Sierra Charlie Aviation’s growing training fleet includes two brand new Cessna 172 Skyhawks that are G1000 equipped and coupled with GFC700 autopilot. Your glass cockpit training is transferable to every glass cockpit aircraft, from a Cirrus SR-22, to a TBM, to a Citation Mustang.
Our training team is composed of passionate and highly experienced Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) who have trained everyone from Sport Pilots to Flight Instructors, and recreational flyers to airline pilots. These outstanding instructors, combined with our excellent curriculum, will help you earn your wings with one-on-one instruction tailored to your schedule.
Take a Discovery Flight
If you are new to aviation, the best way to decide if flying is for you is through a Discovery Flight. This is the first opportunity for you to take the controls of the aircraft and get first-hand experience in the pilot’s seat. One of our FAA Approved Flight Instructors will take you through a pre-flight briefing and your first flight experience. This first lesson costs only $199, and counts toward your minimum requirements for your license.
Fulfilling your dreams in the sky is the mission of Sierra Charlie Aviation. Our Cessna flight school in Scottsdale, AZ, gives you the opportunity to learn to fly in the single-engine Cessna Skyhawk 172, the industry standard for professional flight training.
