Learning to fly is a combination of acquiring aeronautical knowledge, flight proficiency, and flight experience.  At Summit Flight Training, our Private Pilot Certificate (PPL) program is comprehensive but also requires you to put in the work!

Certified Flight Instructors hold the key to training the next generation of aviators. It is a rewarding career that allows you to mentor and teach your future colleagues! If you are interested in becoming a CFI in Colorado, we can help you become an effective instructor.

A Commercial Pilot rating allows you to refine your flying skills so you can be compensated as a pilot. This rating enables you to reach your highest aspirations, whether you continue on as a career flight instructor or fly a 787 for an airline. We offer a comprehensive program that will help you achieve this rating quickly so you can start getting paid to fly!

Mountain flight training is a great way to build your confidence in the challenging and beautiful terrain that makes flight training in Northern Colorado so special! John Denver wasn’t exaggerating when he described our cathedral mountains and the silver clouds below. Mountain flying is one of the best perks of living in Northern Colorado!

Your instrument training will focus on flying the airplane by reference to flight instruments only. Achieving this rating is one of the best things a pilot can do to develop more precise flying techniques. Summit Flight Training will help you become a proficient instrument pilot, one of the most rewarding experiences in aviation.

ABOUT US

Summit Flight Training was founded by Corrie Stevens and Andrew Chung, who wanted to create a community in which any lifelong learner in aviation would feel welcome. From their backgrounds in education, Corrie and Andrew understand that a positive, fun, and safe environment promotes understanding and achievement. Summit Flight Training combines a student-centered approach with high-quality instruction in order to maximize learning. 

 

In addition to flight instruction, Summit Flight Training also strives to facilitate connections among learners and professionals. We believe that both students and flight instructors thrive when they have access to diverse facets of the aviation community. 

 

Summit Flight Training is proud to be co-owned by a female pilot. Because less than 10% of pilots are women, Summit Flight Training is passionate about creating a space where women are encouraged and uplifted throughout their flight training and beyond.

 

The next step in your aviation journey is just a phone call away.
