The training fleet – the aircraft that flight training students will be flying — is also a key factor to consider when choosing a pilot school. Not only does Phoenix East Aviation have a large number of training aircraft (approx. 35), but equally, are the new and late model aircraft that comprise the training fleet. The new technology in the Phoenix East training fleet are a definite asset to students, making it easier to transition into the types of aircraft that airlines and charter companies fly. Flight schools with fleets and older models of training aircraft are signs that may warrant a red flag for prospective students. Why does this matter? Older aircraft typically require more unscheduled maintenance – and this “downtime” of your aircraft can easily end up delaying training flights and pushing graduation dates back in some cases. This means delaying getting that job with an airline.
Phoenix East Aviation’s modern fleet consists of planes with the latest flight control and avionics systems. One example is the new, state-of-the-art Diamond DA-42 multi-engine aircraft. Another highly-regarded trainer is the Cessna C-172SP Skyhawk.
The training fleet – as well as professional instructors –, allow Phoenix East Aviation to offer students the best quality education available. We invite you to find out more on our website at http://www.pea.com/ to learn more information about our flight training school.
