CIRRUS TRAINING IN SCOTTSDALE, AZ

Experience Matters

Elite Flight Training & Rentals offers the kind of training experience that is not typically available to private students.

High-time instructors are former airline pilots, so you know you’re flying with a pilot who has handled every situation you could possibly encounter in the air.

Instructor total flight hours range from 6,000 – 26,000 hours, compared to the average flight instructor’s 300 or 400 hours;

Our instructors have logged over 12,000 hours of Cirrus time alone.

You’ll work with the same instructor throughout your training, and all your training, both ground school and flight time, will be conducted one-on-one with your instructor.

Your full-time instructor is available 7 days a week, whose sole business is flight instruction, and whose sole concern is your success.

TESTIMONIALS

Your facility and operation is First Class

Your facility and operation is first class. Your planes are top notch. And, the experience was far beyond my expectations. However, as good as all that, it was Tom & Dale that were the most OUTSTANDING. They made me feel welcome. They boosted my confidence. Despite their years of flying, they were still both very enthusiastic about flying, which fueled my enthusiasm. Honestly, I learned more from them in the few hours I spent with them than I have in weeks spent with my instructor. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay longer to complete my private pilot training with one of them.

The entire experience was incredibly professional, precise, effective and enjoyable

Elite Flight Training was instrumental in my efficient journey to achieving my life goal of flight. The entire experience was incredibly professional, precise, effective and enjoyable while integrating this into my demanding professional schedule.

The fleet of planes at Elite are awesome and I’m so glad I chose to do my training there

I became an aviation geek the second Chuck rotated 920AW on my Intro Ride. I was hooked. I couldn’t get started on my Private Pilot fast enough.

Training in a Cirrus with a glass cockpit is pretty special. The fleet of planes at Elite are awesome and I’m so glad I chose to do my training there.

Training in and around a busy airspace, as well as Bravo airspace accelerates your learning and radio work. I’m not intimidated to fly into any airport after learning to fly in Phoenix.

I’ll be doing my Instrument Rating with Chuck as well.
