The Mountain CFI Instructors

More than any other aspect, what sets us apart from other local flight schools is our instructors. You will receive instruction from experienced professionals that have extensive aviation knowledge and are adept at teaching the art and science of flight. Unlike many flight schools where the instructor is just building time for their next career, our instructors are seasoned professionals who have already made it to the top and now are coming back to instructing for the enjoyment of teaching. Our instructors practice what they teach, using their skills and strategies to fly to places like Alaska, Montana, Idaho. You can learn more about our instructors below.
