Whatever your dreams are when it comes to flying, we can help you achieve them!

No matter the ultimate goal – recreational flying or a career in aviation – anyone, at any age, can learn to fly, and Sierra Charlie Aviation is committed to providing the best equipment and expert flight instructors to make it happen. No prior flight experience is required.

Our state-of-the-art training facilities are conveniently based at Scottsdale Airport (SDL) in beautiful Scottsdale, AZ, the #1 location in the world for flight training due to the exceptional year-round flying conditions. We also have a location-based at Chandler Municipal Airport (CHD) in Chandler, AZ. Pilots here enjoy an average of 360 days a year using Visual Flight Rules (VFR), which means more time in the air for you!

Students learn in new single-engine Cessna 172 Skyhawks, the industry standard for professional flight training. More pilots have earned their wings in a 172 than in any other aircraft in the world.

Our integrated Cessna flight training program includes all training materials, ground school, and the flight time needed to prepare you for your check ride. You will train in a relaxed environment, and we’ll do everything possible to make it enjoyable.

Our highly experienced Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) have extensive piloting experience — from corporate, to commercial airlines, to World War II aircraft demonstration, to flying the great expanse of the Alaskan Bush. These outstanding instructors, combined with our high-tech equipment and excellent curriculum, will help you earn your wings faster with one-on-one instruction that is customized to fit to your schedule.

"Checked out all flight school options and Sierra Charlie was no doubt the best flight school in the area. The brand new Cessnas are by far the best aircraft I've had the opportunity to fly. The staff are educated and well equipped for both ground and air. I would absolutely recommend this place."
