About Sierra Charlie

Commercial Pilot Training in Phoenix, AZ

Sierra Charlie Aviation is located at Scottsdale Airport (SDL) at the base of the McDowell Mountains. This is an excellent environment in which to teach and learn piloting. We provide flight training under the authority of Federal Aviation Regulations (or FAR) Part 61, which gives students greater flexibility than FAR Part 141 training. We are also a Cessna Pilot Center.

We have been recognized year after year by The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), the world’s largest aviation association, for our high standard of accomplishment in flight training.  Recently, we won the 2019 Flight Training Experience Award for Best Flight School in the Western Region.

Our Fleet

Our fleet is growing, and it now includes six brand new Cessna 172 Skyhawks. All of them are equipped with G1000 glass cockpits and couples with GFC700 autopilot. These aircrafts and their features not only look and feel great, but they make flying easier and safer.

What Is a Cessna Academy?

We are a Cessna Pilot Center because Cessna represents the highest quality in piloting and pilot training. Centers that quality for this title have been individually approved by the Cessna Aircraft Company, the world leader in the field. Few schools qualify for this distinction, and we think it is something that makes us stand out.

Our Instructors

Our Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) have extensive piloting experience – from corporate, to World War II aircraft demonstration, to flying the great expanse of the Alaskan Bush – that lends greatly not only to their ability to teach you to fly, but also to their capacity to diversify training based on the individual needs of our students.

Discovery Flights

You are invited to come to Scottsdale and take one of our Discovery Flights. The “mini lesson” will give you an idea of what a typical flight lesson is like. You will learn about the plane and the instruments, then briefly take control of the aircraft from taxi to takeoff (if you’re comfortable with it). Then, you’ll hand the plane back over to the Flight Instructor for landing. In addition to this, you will be able to meet the Sierra Charlie staff and be taken on a tour of our grounds.

No matter the time of year, all Discovery Flights provide stunning views of the Arizona landscape from above. Don’t forget to bring a camera!
