About Our Instructors


Alpha Air offers training for the Private Pilot License (fixed wing), Instrument rating and Commercial Pilot License. Alpha Air can also provide training to be a Flight Instructor.  

Our Curriculum adheres to FAA standards, part 61. Instruction is on a "one to one" basis and is self-paced. We do not offer high pressure compressed curriculums. We also supply the necessary books and supplies at discount and tax-free. (Thanks to our non-profit status!)

We give instruction in mountain / desert flying and specialize in remedial work. Alpha Air also offers "pinch-hitter" training for flying companions.
