Mountain Flight Training

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! You will learn how to use the resources available to you on the ground to make safe go/no-go decisions. You will learn about how to navigate in the mountains and gain an understanding of the updrafts and downdrafts you will encounter. You will also discuss survival equipment, box canyon awareness and high altitude takeoffs and landings. Mountain training typically takes an hour of ground training followed by a flight in our beautiful mountains.
