Flying The Rockies

We are based out of Albuquerque New Mexico. Learning to fly here has the unique advantages over many other regions as we are at high altitude and are surrounded by the gorgeous Rocky Mountains. Mountain flying presents many challenges that are best addressed with an experienced and knowledgeable instructor to help you remain safe while discovering all the beauty and romance of the world that aviation offers you. We are fortunate to boast that on an average over 300 days of the year in Albuquerque are full of blue skies and are conducive to great flying. With less days on the ground, you have more time to advance your skills and become a great pilot.
