Mountain Flying Course!

One of the greatest thrills of being a Pilot in Colorado is the opportunity to fly throughout the majestic Rocky Mountains.  With snowcapped peaks, high deserts and grasslands, and many interesting public-use airports, mountain flying can be the highlight of a lifetime!

All Aspen Flying Club pilots wishing to fly in the mountains need a mountain flying checkout.  Pilots with their own aircraft are highly encouraged to do the same.  This can be accomplished by taking our Mountain Flying Ground Course, followed by a mountain checkout with one of our expert instructors.  Each student will fly a specific routes determined by the instructor to individually suit your needs.  Common destinations are Buena Vista, Leadville, Aspen, Glenwood, and Granby.  There are many other options; the sky is the limit on where you can go! 

About the Mountain Flying Ground Course

The class will consist of 4 hours of ground training, where you will learn the basics of how to fly in the rocky terrain.  You will learn the fundamentals of performance considerations, developing go-no-go judgment skills, mountain flight planning, and developing confidence for mountain flying.

*The cost of the class is $100 for Aspen Flying Club members and  $150 for non-members.  The flight portion of the checkout will be a separate cost, depending on the aircraft choice and desired route of the student.

Class space is limited, so don't wait to register!
