CIRRUS FLIGHT TRAINING SCOTTSDALE, AZ


LEARN FROM THE BEST TO BECOME THE BEST


Elite Flight Training offers the kind of training experience that is not typically available to private students. For those pursuing a Private Pilot or Instrument Rating license, or for established pilots seeking training in their Technically Advanced Aircraft, Chief Pilot and FAA Certified Instructor Chuck Lapmardo brings the knowledge gained in a 35-year career as a Gold Seal Flight Instructor and airline Captain.

Experience Matters


Elite Flight Training’s program has been designed to incorporate all the elements that are critical to making you as safe and competent a pilot as possible:

  • Highly experienced instructors, so you know you’re flying with a pilot who has handled every situation you could possibly encounter in the air. Chuck Lapmardo has accumulated 13,000 flight hours, and has flown everything from a Cessna 150 to an Airbus 320. This compares to the average flight instructor’s 300 or 400 hours;
  • Technically-advanced aircraft that include TCAS (Traffic Collision Avoidance System) and TWAS(Terrain Warning Awareness System) to keep you safe in the air;
  • A full-time instructor who is available 7 days a week, whose sole business is flight instruction, and whose sole concern is your success;
  • A commitment that you’ll work with the same instructor throughout your training, and that all instruction, both ground school and flight time, will be conducted one-on-one with your instructor;
  • Instructional aircraft that are school-owned to ensure that you’ll complete your entire training in our technically-advanced, glass cockpit Cirrus;
  • A training atmosphere that is professional but personable: our goal is to discover the teaching style that will maximize your learning experience, because we’re not successful until you’re successful.

We invite you to look at any other training facility in Phoenix/Scottsdale, and then come talk to us or send us a Contact Form. You’ll see what makes Elite Flight Training your best possible choice in flight training.

Before I met Chuck, I had gone through three flight instructors and I believed I did not have what it took to be a good pilot. I struggled every time I got into a cockpit. Chuck, with his experience and amazing way he makes things so simple, had me doing great landings in a couple of sessions, understand what flying was all about, and now I am IFR rated and flying all across North America! If it wasn’t for Chuck I doubt I would be flying today or enjoying the freedom that I now experience. Thank you!
