Scottsdale Flight School

Learning to fly can be one of life’s most rewarding adventures. If you are looking for a Scottsdale flight school that provides pilot training of the highest caliber, consider Sierra Charlie Aviation.

Sierra Charlie Aviation is proud of our selection for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) 2016 Flight Training Excellence Awards Honor Roll as one of the top flight schools in the country.

Why Choose Sierra Charlie Aviation?

FAR Part 61 Flight Training

Sierra Charlie Aviation currently provides flight training under the authority of Federal Aviation Regulations (or FAR) Part 61. Our training program is simpler than a FAR Part 141 program.

Federal regulations require certain subjects to be taught, but Part 61 programs allow students to rearrange the content and sequence of their flying lessons to meet their individual goals.

If you plan to fly for enjoyment with your friends and family and are only available for training on a part-time basis, our Part 61 flight school can offer you excellent flexibility.

Top-Notch Aircraft

Sierra Charlie Aviation is a certified Cessna Pilot Center (CPC), a specially selected flight school that represents top-quality, professional flight training. 

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, from a Cirrus SR-22, to a TBM, to a Citation Mustang.

The Cessna 172 is the world’s most popular aircraft, and more of them have been built than any other aircraft. It’s versatile, reliable, and the industry standard for professional flight training.

Aviation-Perfect Weather

Sierra Charlie Aviation is located at Scottsdale Airport (SDL) and convenient to students in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Glendale, Mesa, Chandler, and surrounding areas.

Scottsdale, Arizona, is located in the beautiful Sonoran Desert which is bordered to the west by Phoenix and to the east by the McDowell Mountains. We have some of the finest flying weather in the world and enjoy more than 300 days of clear, sunny, aviation-perfect weather every year.

SDL is a tower controlled airport with an 8,249 foot runway and provides Sierra Charlie Aviation students with quick and safe access to local practice areas and nearby airports.

Excellent Training Curriculum

As a certified Cessna Pilot Center (CPC), Sierra Charlie Aviation utilizes the Cessna Pilot Center approved syllabus to ensure that we cover each task that will be tested by an examiner. If you are already a licensed pilot, we offer extended and recurring training programs and instrument flight training.

Sierra Charlie’s training team is composed of passionate and highly experienced Flight Instructors 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.
