Team

All Colorado Flight Center instructors are certificated flight instructors (CFIs), authorized by the FAA to conduct ground and flight training. Flight training is conducted according to the policies specified in our Safety Practices and Procedures Manual. Our instructors have a wide variety of experience in primary, advanced, instrument, multi-engine, and mountain flying instruction. Additionally, we are Western Colorado’s only flight school on the leading edge of cockpit and avionics technology. Ask around! You won’t find another flight school that can compete with our hours, experience, and knowledge of Garmin, Bendix/King, Avidyne, Aspen, and other advanced EFIS systems. Don’t spend your valuable lesson time teaching your instructor how to work your panel; come to the experts and get the most out of your flight instruction dollar.
