Students acclimate to flying in a state-of-the-art simulator, before manning the cockpit of a real aircraft where they learn to taxi down a runway and soar into the air under the watchful eyes of FAA-certified instructors. Duos also nestle into the cockpit to man the throttle, taking to the skies for a photo-ready excursion that offers zeppelins-eye views of the Pikes Peak and miles of scenic mountains.<p>

A-Cent Aviation

The experienced, Federal Aviation Administration–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.
