The experienced, FAA-certified flight instructors at A-Cent Aviation use their aerial expertise to help new flyers learn to navigate the clear Colorado skies. An FAA-approved, category IV AATD, fully enclosed flight simulator offers 120 degree, high-resolution visuals and can be configured to teach students the controls and trick to packing overhead luggage compartments in 25 different models of aircraft. VA-approved courses offer instruction for manning everything from recreational and commercial planes, to single-engine aircraft, with an FAA-testing center on-site to test developing skills. A-Cent Aviation also plays matchmaker by maintaining a small fleet of new and used aircraft to pair with lonely pilots, while a pilot shop provides access to shelves stocked with study materials, cockpit supplies, and pterodactyl repellents.

From its nest at Colorado Springs Airport, Peak Aviation Center opens the skyways for fledgling aviators through aircraft rentals and a variety of flying courses. During their Introductory Flights, the center’s seasoned instructors relinquish controls of a light sport aircraft to students hungering to dominate gravity. Learning aeronauts can control the flying machines for up to an hour as they ascend, descend, and dodge shots from surprisingly powerful T-shirt cannons. Peak Aviations enthusiastic masters of the clouds also guide flying protégés to private and sport pilot certificates through hands-on flight training. Flying lessons are held every day of the week, including Sunday even when their offices are closed.
