Primary 

Training

Gone are the days of learning to fly in outdated aircraft.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.

Advanced 

Training

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.

 

Transition 

Training

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.

Immersion 

Training

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. 

 

Tailwheel & 

STOL

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! Our tailwheel and STOL instructors have the largest network of grass strips in the area, and will happily take the blame for getting student pilots, retired 747 pilots and the like hooked on the art of backcountry flight.
