Safety First

First-Class Training

AeroGuard is a hands-on education. You will be learning in a flight simulator, available 24/7, flying missions, and working with instructors in small class sizes to ensure you’re learning the skills you need, nothing less. Our main campus out of Phoenix is the second largest airport in the area, just behind Sky Harbor International. This allows our cadets and instructors to fly over 160 flights per day, over 8 times the number of other flight schools.

Transparent, All-Inclusive Tuition

AeroGuard keeps flight school costs manageable is through our transparent, all-inclusive tuition model. Other flight schools sometimes offer deceptively low tuition costs, but these don’t account for everything a cadet needs. They do not include the substantial supplemental costs of testing, extra flight time you may need, and checkride fees necessary to complete your training and become a paid airline pilot.

At AeroGuard, it’s all-inclusive.
