Why Classic Air?

Affordable pilots license


CAA has a fully staffed, in-house maintenance department that handles all the tasks required to keep our fleet in the air. We have our own fueling facility and trucks to provide our customers with lower-cost aircraft rental options. With our proven training method and syllabus, we keep our students close to the minimum required hours while training in one of the busiest airspaces in the U.S. We offer cash back rewards program for active students and pilots, as well as discounts to active and retired military members. We give our customers flexible payment options, and we can assist them in signing up for financing. Best of all, we don’t require our students to pay for programs up front; they can pay for their individual lessons as they go.

Comprehensive flight training programs


Classic Air offers self-paced and fast-track programs for private pilot, instrument, commercial pilot, and certified flight instructor (CFI) ratings. Unlike most AZ flight schools, we also offer add-ons such as tailwheel or complex aircraft endorsements. We take pride in training our students the traditional “old school” way, teaching skills such as navigation utilizing charts and maps, keeping navigation logs, E6B, and plotter alongside new technology like GPS, moving maps, and glass-cockpit transition. We provide military aviation prep courses for those interested in joining the armed forces as a pilot, courses for family members, solo courses, ground-school classes, and simulator training. Our FBO and maintenance services are equally comprehensive.

Streamlined Curriculum

Streamlined Curriculum

Classic Air Aviation offers a streamlined curriculum for students seeking flight training from certified flight instructors who are more than qualified to help pass on their knowledge as seasoned pilots. From ground school to flight training, CAA has implemented a training program that can help pilots receive the experience they need and hone their skills. Our syllabus-based flight school is committed to helping you get the proper certifications, license, and training you need to get you in the air. With a variety of programs and training available, we also offer fast track programs from accomplished flight instructors who can flexibly apply our streamlined syllabus for students in every program. Contact our Arizona flight school today to learn more.



Classic Air Aviation is a “mid-sized” flight school and fixed base operator (FBO) in Mesa, Arizona. We are small enough to know all our students and customers by their first names, which enables us to provide a friendly, personal experience to each of them. Unlike some of the large flight schools, we treat each student as an individual and tailor their training to meet their specific needs and goals. On the other hand, Classic Air Aviation is big enough to offer a full range of certification and rating courses. We have spacious, professional-grade training and maintenance facilities, with a fleet of aircraft to keep our students moving through their programs, as well as a comprehensive range of small-aircraft ground services.

Flight Training Programs

Flight Training Programs

The greatest part about our flight training programs is that they can be paid for at the completion of each flight lesson. The total cost of a program does not need to be paid for up front. Student flight accounts can be funded with a minimum of $1,000 dollars in order to start flying. What are you waiting for?

Aircraft Fleet

Aircraft Fleet

Diverse. Mentioned by our pilots when taking a look at Classic Air’s fleet of 14 aircraft ranging from a Redbird flight simulator, Cessna 120 taildragger and Cessna 172’s as primary training platforms. New pilots and seasoned pilots will have no problem finding a favorite with multiple options to choose from.

Flight Training Pricing

There is no such thing as a semester start date! Self paced programs and fast track programs are designed with the pilots schedule in mind. Programs are available for the pleasure business flyer obtaining a private pilot license or students looking to complete the entire course to become an airline pilot.

Pilot Reviews

All the mechanics, dispatch staff, detailers, line staff, and flight instructors are amazing people to work with. CAA has a facility that makes you feel at home, a staff that really cares and knows everyone on a first name basis. Falcon Field is the greatest airport in the Valley, it’s busy enough to test your piloting skills yet small enough to make it a great training airport. CAA is the perfect place to train if you’re looking to train at a school where you’re more than a number and a dollar sign.

I had my bi-annual review with them and got checked out in a C-172 at the same time. Great instruction, great rates, great facility and great people. This is the place to learn to fly or just rent a plane. I highly recommend this flight school to any other pilots or future pilots out there.

Tim B. ★★★★★

I currently flight train through Classic and also rent their aircraft on the side. Classic Air Aviation is awesome. I’ve been to a lot of flight schools and can honestly say the staff here is knowledgeable, friendly, and put a high emphasis on pilot safety. They have several nice aircraft to choose from and their instructors are professional, always available to answer my questions, and take the time to make the process fun and relaxing.
