American Flyers Flight School has announced the opening of a new training facility at the Scottsdale Airport, 15000 N. Airport Drive.
The school will open its doors on Nov. 1, and has scheduled an open house from noon nto 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12.
“This is an exciting venture. We look forward to providing a convenient and professional environment for local pilots to pursue their aviation education,” said American Flyers’ Executive Andrew Henley in a prepared statement.
“Arizona’s favorable weather means more flying days, and provides us the opportunity to attract pilots during the winter who are preparing for their Private Pilot or Commercial Licenses and Instrument Rating.”
In addition to flight training, weekend classes will be conducted monthly for FAA Knowledge Test preparation as well as the Flight Instructor Renewal requirement.
American Flyers has provided instruction for personal aviators and those pursuing an Aviation Career since 1939. They operate six additional FAA-approved schools throughout the country.
