Trade Winds Aviation provides flight training and ground instruction services ranging from the Private Pilot Certificate through CFI (Certified Flight Instructor) and ATP (Airline Transport Pilot). Many of our prior students are currently working in the aviation industry as commercial/airline pilots. We also provide a variety of flight training services including Flight Reviews, IPC’s, and mountain flying courses.
We want to help you learn to fly and reach your aviation goals as safely and affordably as possible. While we already offer some of the lowest rates around, active duty military personnel and Metro State students are also eligible for discounted rates. Please contact us or stop in and check out our facilities and aircraft, as well as, meet our friendly and knowledgeable staff.
This certificate requires a minimum of 40 hours of flight training, and allows you to fly most single engine aircraft day or night under fair weather conditions. Once certified, you may add an instrument rating that will allow you to fly in the clouds.
This rating lets you fly in instrument meteorological conditions (clouds and low visibility). It not only allows you to become a much safer pilot by learning these skills, but it also allows you to make a flight where you might otherwise have to cancel due to marginal weather.
This is the first step in a pilot’s career that allows a person to work as a pilot. We offer single or multi-engine flight training on the commercial level that will enable a pilot to meet minimum standards to work for compensation in a variety of areas ranging from commercial operators, banner towing and flight instruction.
