We share your passion for aviation at Sierra Charlie. Positioned in lovely Scottsdale, AZ, we enjoy clear-for-takeoff weather year-round, and tower-controlled Scottsdale Airport (SDL) provides proximal convenience to many practice airfields.
As a FAR Part 61-authorized flight school, we’re prepared to provide modified training programs as needed. Unlike Part 141 schools, we’re not married to format or pacing. While the standards are the same for the same license regardless of school authorization, we can adjust the lesson to suit students’ schedule availability and learning preferences because of our Part 61 governance.
The full menu of training we provide includes private and commercial pilot licenses, instrument rating training, multi-engine training, and Certified Flight Instructor I/II training.
