AeroGuard Flight School in Arizona - Deer Valley Airport, Phoenix, AZ

Our Phoenix Flight School the Perfect Environment for Flight

350 days/year of beautiful blue skies

Our Phoenix Flight School takes full advantage of the environment for our students. An average high of 87°F, low of 61°F, and an average annual precipitation of 10 inches means flight training is rarely delayed for bad weather—so you can accumulate flight hours safer and faster.

Diverse Experience

The Phoenix metro area offers an incredibly diverse flying experience, having a mix of controlled (class A-E) and uncontrolled (class G) airspace. That uncontrolled airspace, located a short flight from the campus, offers a great location for pilots to practice and master flight maneuvers without distractions.

That diverse experience is helped by the number of available airports in the area. The AeroGuard Elite program will have pilots engaged with over a dozen different airports in the Phoenix area. This local training gives easy access to a wide variety of instrument approaches (over 150+!) and airport procedures, giving our pilots the real-world experience that sets them apart.

Arizona and the Southwest as a whole, have a variety of weather conditions and destinations making for great cross-country flight training.
