Located in Southern Utah at the Hurricane Municipal Airport, America West Flight Training offers professional flight training tailored to your needs and at very competitive prices.

One of the main advantages in training with America West Flight Training is we operate mostly in non congested airspace, which means your flight instructor can concentrate his attention on your flight training rather than worrying about numerous other aircraft in the area or in the airport traffic pattern along with the associated delays. 

Also, we incorporate the use of several airports in the area into your flight training which provides a variety of training experiences instead of getting used to just one airport. After all, one of the main benefits of learning to fly is the freedom it gives you to travel to other areas and airports.

Using airports such as St. George, Cedar City, Colorado City, Henderson and others helps you learn the skills to operate from narrow short runways as well as long wide runways.

America West Flight Training's flight instructors are experienced pilots and are able to tailor your training program to fit your individual needs and circumstances. In our opinion, this is a much better way of training than putting each student through the same highly structured training program. Our flight instructors have taught students from age 16 to 70 years old and as a Part 61 flight school, our training programs are flexible, while still meeting the Federal Aviation Administration requirements for the particular certificate or rating you are seeking.

MULTI-ENGINE RATING, CFI, CFII, MEI, COMMERICAL ADD ON RATINGS, AND ANY OTHER CERTIFICATES OR RATINGS YOU ARE LOOKING TO EARN:

Please call 435-635-0467 and talk to one of our flight instructors who can work out a tailored plan to fit your needs.

With any of the ratings listed above, there is some overlap in the training times and our experienced flight instructors can go through the details and work out a training schedule that works best for you and will get you your certificate or rating at the least possible cost.

America West Flight Training offers accelerated training programs such as a 14 day Private Pilot Course, 10 day Instrument course, and a 5 day Commercial course. Or you can train at your own pace and as your finances will allow. At America West Flight Training we do not require that you pay for your course in advance but we work on a "pay as you go" basis. This relieves the student from the pressure of having to come up with many thousands of dollars in advance.

America West Flight Training strongly believes in exceptional flight training at the lowest possible cost. In the following paragraphs we outline different motives for learning to fly, and how America West Flight Training's flexible training programs can be tailored to meet just about every need.

FOR THOSE LOOKING TO BECOME A PROFESSIONAL AIRLINE PILOT:

There are different ways you can get the training you need to become a professional pilot. Joining a branch of the military that offers a flight training program, enrolling in a college or university flight training program, or taking flight training at the local airport can all be good options depending on your circumstances. In today's competitive job market, the professional airline pilot really should get a college or university degree. It doesn't really matter what the degree is in, as long as you get one, and do the best you can at getting good grades.

The big flight schools and university flight programs certainly have a place in this industry, but we are concerned when we see students graduating with a degree and a commercial rating and maybe a Certified Flight Instructor certificate, but also with $150,000 dollars in student loan debt, and still without the required flight time to get into a professional pilot career. We have had university students tell us that if they fail any part of a training module, they have to repeat the entire module again instead of retraining in just the area of deficiency. This adds up to many extra unnecessary flight hours and slows the students progress.

We believe a good option to this is to enroll in Dixie State University in whatever degree program you are interested in and take your flight training at America West Flight Training. The training requirements are set by the Federal Aviation Administration and are basically the same for every flight school, so really the question becomes one of training quality and cost. America West Flight Training has experienced flight instructors that provide exceptional quality in their flight training and the flexible programs to get you the FAA certificates and ratings needed for a professional pilot career at a very reasonable cost.

Call today and let us help you get started on an exciting career as a professional airline pilot.  Call us at 435-635-0467.

FOR PROFESSIONALS OR OTHERS LOOKING TO FLY FOR BUSINESS:

Flying a personal aircraft is an amazing way to travel for business or your profession and can greatly increase your productivity and efficiency. One of the great benefits of using a business aircraft is it opens up the use of thousands of general aviation airports that are not serviced by the airlines but which may be much closer to your ultimate destination. This saves you time and money and is much more convenient than going to a major airport with all its lines, delays, etc.

America West Flight Training has flexible scheduling to allow you to train at your convenience. If you want to complete your training in an accelerated program, we can do that, or if you need to work your training into your busy schedule, we can handle that as well. We can accommodate what ever approach works best for you including training on weekends, early mornings, or evenings/nights.

Call today and see how becoming a Pilot can open up a new efficient/productive way to travel for your business or profession. Call us at 435-635-0467.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN TO FLY JUST FOR  FUN:

Being the Pilot of an airplane gives you a great sense of freedom and adventure and you will gain skills and knowledge that will amaze you and help you in many areas of your life. Being able to fly anywhere you want to go (with a few exceptions of course) is a great benefit and a lot of fun, especially when you can take your family and friends along. 

Being a Pilot is challenging and requires continuing education and skill development. The websites: www.aopa.org and www.faa.gov have many resources to assist you in staying competent and safe. America West Flight Training believes strongly in the concept of ADM (Aeronautical Decision Making) and incorporates these decision making processes into your training. This enables you to develop the decision making skills to assess your strengths and weaknesses and avoid risky situations while piloting a personal airplane.

Call today and take the first step in making your dream of becoming a Private Pilot come true. Call us at 435-635-0467.
