The Beginning of our Scottsdale Flight School

The name “Sawyer” has been synonymous with aviation for half a century. Darrell Sawyer founded Sawyer School of Aviation in 1961 primarily as a flight school, which grew in size and reputation over the years. Today, it has evolved into Sawyer Flight Academy, which is a subsidiary of Sawyer Aviation. Sawyer Aviation is a company with operations in flight training; aircraft-charter; sales; aircraft-acquisition consulting; aircraft rental and aircraft management.

Sawyer Flight Academy’s team of experienced instructors is known for providing high-quality instruction and creating safe aviators. Sawyer Flight Academy is maintaining the Sawyer legacy by offering the same outstanding customer service that the aviation industry has known since 1961.

Experienced Flight Instructors

Training for the big time doesn’t actually have to take a lot of time. Sawyer Aviation students earn their wings about 30 percent faster than the national average. With Sawyer’s pilot training, you can spend less, and get your certificate sooner.

Sawyer Aviation is headquartered in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona, at the Scottsdale Airport (KSDL). Our offices set us far away from natural disasters and extreme weather conditions that can hinder flight operations.

Sawyer Aviation is there for our customers through all aviation-related pursuits. As your partner, we welcome the opportunity to meet your exacting standards … with professionalism, speed, and efficiency. Please contact us, so that we may exceed your expectations and take you above it all!

“Highly recommend considering them for flight training and visiting their location.”

After checking out a few flight schools, Sawyer is very reasonably priced, honest about the requirements, and has a great facility and aircraft.
