"IF YOU ONLY WANT TO BECOME AN AIRLINE PILOT, GO TO AN AIRLINE PREP SCHOOL AND THEY WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO PUSH BUTTONS. IF YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO FLY AIRPLANES, COME TO CHANDLER AIR SERVICE".
There are a lot of flight schools that we would describe as "diploma mills". There is a lot of advertising telling you exactly the things you want to hear. There are a lot of schools cutting all the corners, using all the loopholes in the regulations, finding special ways to get you through, and turning out low flight time pilots with little experience for lots of your money. You will find our company has a much different attitude.
You may be a member of the other 90% of people who wish to learn to fly for reasons other than becoming a professional airline pilot. You have a business or personal need to learn to fly. There are very few schools left who can cater to your needs in the fashion you would expect.
We want you to be able to fly an airplane with skill brought about by understanding what you are doing. We want you to be aggressive in the aircraft you learn to fly and be able to transition that skill into more advanced and faster aircraft. Too many pilots of the new generation lack the intuitive and common sense skills we try to train into our people. Not all the people we train can handle it. Those who decide to fly with us after interviewing and going over our program will find themselves as well or better qualified as anyone and for less cost.
Our programs are designed after many years of experience to provide up to date and efficient flight training without compromising the principles of safety. We teach “single pilot” skills, not crew concept training. Every aircraft you learn to fly in is based on only one pilot flying and all the flight testing is based on that. We are an “Old School” flight school which has a confident and experienced way of getting the job done.
Our flight instructors have been pilots for years not months. We have no children here.
You will not be an airline pilot when you finish our program. You will be a pilot with the skill and understanding to proceed into the next level of flying. Whether it be personal, business or professional, your goals will be better established, the paths to attain them will be clear and you will have a set of standards to be proud of.
