About the USAFA Flight Training Center

Eight (8) aircraft are available as well as Flight Instructors. Aircraft include two (2) T-41Cs, and five (5) Cessna 172s and one (1) Cessna 182Q of various vintages. The Aero Club is FAA part 141 approved for private pilot and instrument certificates. All of our Flight Instructors are highly trained professionals, who are FAA certified. At the club, a member can earn a basic private pilot certificate or go on for more advanced certificates and ratings. If you already are a FAA Certificated Pilot our aircraft are for rent for personal use.

Whether you are a pilot with several thousand hours or a beginner starting at zero, we invite you to check us out. Feel free to stop by at any time to ask questions, see our operations or schedule an introductory flight.

Due to security measures, visitors must have proper authorization attached to their proxy cards. If you do not have proper authorization — please call the Aero Club at 719-333-4542 to make appropriate plans in order to be allowed in the area. As an Aero Club member you will be given training and a badge to operate the security gate.

Safety Meeting is held the third Tuesday of each month, 6 pm, at the Aero Club.
