The industry leading trainer
Cirrus Aircraft SR20
Since its first production, the Cirrus SR20 has been known as the plane that changed the industry. With an emergency parachute system and all glass cockpit, you’ll find there’s no better aircraft than our 2019 SR for you to entrust your life in.
The identical twin
Cirrus Aircraft SR20
By having identical twins, we are able to offer enhanced aircraft flexibility unlike most other training facilities. In fact once you get in the cockpit and feel the plush leather seats and cool air conditioning you’ll notice no difference between the two.
2023 Cirrus SR20

The SR20 is the perfect dual-role airplane: easily manageable for the newer pilot and perfectly suitable for business use.

Every pilot's dream plane
Cirrus Aircraft SR22T | G6 - N599SG
This is what happens when the luxurious features of the SR22 GTS are combined with a 315hp turbocharged beast. Capable of flying high above the rockies, with a max altitude of 25,000 feet, you're going to want to fly this immaculate machine.
Gone are the days of learning to fly in outdated aircraft. At Capital Flight, you can now obtain your Private Pilot's License in one of the world’s safest, most comfortable and sexiest airplanes. Our entirely new fleet of Cirrus SR’s allow our award winning instructors to provide immersive flight training that is designed to cultivate lifetime pilots.
An instrument rating isn't a license, but rather an add-on to an existing private or commercial pilot's license. While obtaining this rating requires dedication and effort, the payoff is tremendous, as it allows you to arrive at your destination even if that means flying through clouds, adverse weather conditions or high above at over 18,000 feet.
There are many reasons we see pilots transition into a Cirrus. Some simply want to take advantage of the enhanced safety features while flying their family and friends, while others look for the luxury of piloting one of the sexiest and capable aircraft known to man. Whatever your case may be, we can help you become a Cirrus Pilot.
Why simulate a flight experience when you can live life and immerse yourself in this hands-on custom tailored training extravaganza. Whether looking to accelerate your pilot training, fly through the western mountain ranges or experience international travel, we’ve got you covered with the most experienced flight instructors to help show you the ropes.
Pop in and out of backcountry grass strips 500 feet or less in the only current generation Aviat Husky available for training in the world!
