We also have two Cessna 172’s and three Great Lakes Aerobatic Biplanes which are available for qualified pilots.

This is a tricky question to answer due to many variables. Each student pilot learns at a different pace, and progress and retention is largely based on how frequently the student flies. Flight time, ground lessons, and personal study all contribute to the timeline. If a student flies 3 times a week and is dedicated to studying the material, a reasonable timeline to earn a Private Pilot’s license can be 3 to 4 months. Learn more
Total cost can vary widely based on a student’s learning pace and availability. There’s also a wide range of hourly rates for different aircraft types. At Chandler Air Service, Private training is done in a Piper Archer, and you can expect the total to reach about $12,000 dollars from start to finish. Unlike many flight schools, we do not charge this up front. All lessons are pay-as-you-go at your own pace. Learn more about our flight training programs
Certainly! We are approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for flight training and the Student Exchange and Visitors Information System (SEVIS) for issuing the Immigration I-20 form for the M-1 student visa for flight training. Learn more
