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

I was so pleased to find Elite Flight Training

Now that Mary has passed her check ride I want to let you know how pleased I have been with your school. Given Mary was 16 when she decided to start her pilot training I was quite concerned she have the safest experience possible. After visiting several flight schools in the Phoenix area I was so pleased to find Elite Flight Training. The professionalism of your staff and the quality of your equipment has been wonderful. Thank you again for taking such good care of Mary.

Thank you for the great annual recurrent training

Wanted to thank you for the great annual recurrent training session in my Meridian… I can’t tell you how many times you have been sitting on my shoulder in critical decision making moments, most recently while canceling a flight when I already had my family strapped in, turbine spinning, to go on vacation. “What you Chuck do” is a common refrain. Thank you for letting me borrow on the pool of knowledge that you have accumulated over so many years of instruction and ATP captaincy in the big iron.

Gave me the comfort I needed to learn to fly

My greatest concern when deciding to learn to fly was safety. With Chuck and Elite Flight Training & Rentals LLC my concerns were addressed and relieved immediately. Chuck’s patient and systematic approach to teaching gave me the comfort I needed to learn to fly not only well but very safely.

Len

Thank you!

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!
