Cessna Training Scottsdale, AZ

If you are interested in training to fly the Cessna 172 Skyhawk, one of the safest general aviation aircraft ever built, Sierra Charlie Aviation in Scottsdale, AZ offers an award-winning program that will enable you to fly more often and complete your flight training faster.

Sierra Charlie Aviation’s home base is located at Scottsdale Airport (SDL), a tower controlled airport with an 8,249-foot runway that serves corporate aircraft. Our location provides quick and safe access to local practice areas and nearby airports and is convenient for students in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Glendale, Mesa, Chandler, and beyond.

Sierra Charlie Aviation is a FAR Part 61 flight school. If you have limited time to devote to flight training, our course will enable you to complete your training in an accelerated timeframe compared to a FAR Part 141 school which has a less flexible training structure.

Our growing training fleet includes two brand new Cessna 172 Skyhawks that are G1000 equipped and coupled with GFC700 autopilot. Your glass cockpit training will be transferable to every glass cockpit aircraft.

The Cessna program is the only integrated flight-training program in existence. It includes all training materials, ground school, and flight time needed to prepare you for your check ride. No prior flight experience is required. You will train in a relaxed environment, and we will do everything possible to make it an enjoyable experience.
