Scottsdale Pilots License

Are you thinking about getting your pilots license in Scottsdale, AZ? Sierra Charlie Aviation has been honored with AOPA Flight Training Excellence Awards as one of the top flight schools in the country based on our high-caliber flight training program. We would love to help you earn your wings!

Sierra Charlie Aviation is a certified Cessna Pilot Center (CPC) with a growing training fleet that includes brand new Cessna 172 Skyhawks that are G1000 equipped and coupled with GFC700 autopilot. The Cessna 172 is one of the safest general aviation aircraft ever built and a great training aircraft. 

We currently provide FAR Part 61 flight training. Our program is simpler than a FAR Part 141 program. Students can customize the content and sequence of their flying lessons to meet their needs, which gives you exceptional flexibility if you have limited time for training.

Sierra Charlie Aviation owner and Chief Flight Instructor Scott Campbell (CFI, MEI) has been recognized by AOPA as the Best Flight Instructor in the Southwest Region, a title given to the top scoring flight instructor from the organization’s 2017 Flight Training Experience Survey.  He is the only instructor in the Southwest to earn this recognition. 

Additionally, Senior Flight Instructor Tom DeYoung (CFI, CFII) is one of three instructors in the region to be recognized as a Distinguished Flight Instructor. Meet the Sierra Charlie Aviation team.
