Diverse Experience in Phoenix, Arizona
AeroGuard’s Phoenix flight school, located at the Deer Valley Airport (KDVT), offers excellent opportunities for new students to expand their knowledge and become well-rounded commercial pilots.
AeroGuard’s fleet is home to Piper Archers and Piper Seminoles. Most planes are Air Conditioned for student comfort in the Arizona heat. When our students aren’t flying, they have unlimited access to two RedBird SIM devices for their own practice and mastery. This allows students to place their full focus on specific flight techniques as needed to maximize their skills as an aviator.
At KDVT, students are exposed to a mix of controlled (Class B-E) and uncontrolled (Class G) airspace. There are 24 Class B airspace shelves and 8 Class D airports within 30 nautical miles of Deer Valley Airport as well as 4 special air traffic airspace shelves. Of the 92 different airports in the Phoenix area, 18 are tower controlled. Flying in controlled airspace gives students the opportunity to communicate with air traffic control and become accustomed to using radio communications. The uncontrolled airspace, only a short distance from the airport offers a great location for pilots to exercise flight maneuvers without disturbance.
At AeroGuard’s Phoenix flight school, students have access to parallel runways for maximum arrival and departure efficiency, as well as a wide variety of 150+ instrument approaches and procedures surrounding the airport. These opportunities allow students to gain real-world knowledge that sets them apart from the rest.
With an average of 350 flying days a year, students are better able to retain their knowledge and skills due to the ability to have focused and continuous training throughout the year. Arizona’s great climate allows students to stay safe and on track towards their careers.
