Pilot School AZ

Are you looking for an affordable pilot school in the Scottsdale, AZ area? Sierra Charlie Aviation can customize a flight training program to meet your needs.

Sierra Charlie Aviation is proud to be an approved Cessna Pilot Center (CPC), a designation only a limited number of flight schools have achieved. Cessna Pilot Centers have taught more pilots to fly than any other type of flight school in the country.

We provide one of the finest learning experiences for prospective pilots by utilizing the Cessna Flight Training System, a comprehensive, proven flight-training program that produces competent and prepared new pilots about 30% faster than the national average.

Our flight training is provided under the authority of Federal Aviation Regulations (or FAR) Part 61, which is more flexible than FAR Part 141 training. Lesson content and the sequence of the training program can be modified at the discretion of your instructor.

The required minimum flight time for a Private Pilot License is 40 hours, but the actual number of hours will vary from student to student based on dedication and availability. The more often you fly, the faster you will be able to earn your license. By flying often, you will also avoid becoming rusty from lack of practice and having to repeat material you already learned.

If you are looking for a training schedule that can be customized to fit around your work/school schedule, Sierra Charlie Aviation can help!

Experienced Flight Instructors

Our Certificated Flight Instructors (CFIs) have a wide range of piloting experience—from corporate, to World War II aircraft demonstration, to Alaska bush piloting – which gives them an exceptional ability to teach and to diversify your training based on your individual needs.
