Mach 1 Aviation’s fleet of training and rental aircraft ranges from a Cessna 152 to a Cirrus SR22T. We have the right aircraft for every mission, regardless if you’re seeking flight training or just a weekend getaway. All of our aircraft are IFR equipped with Garmin avionics and can be used for all stages of flight training at the Van Nuys airport. We leverage years of aircraft management experience and work with an on site maintenance facility to keep our aircraft, and those of our clients, maintained to the highest standards and provide a safe operating environment for our pilots.
Part of the beauty of attending our Los Angeles flight school and learning to fly out of the Van Nuys airport is that we play in some of the most beautiful and most complicated airspace in the country. Learning to fly in the LA Basin is an achievement in it of itself. Every flight we gain an appreciation for the complexities as well as the sheer beauty of the area we call our home airspace. We’re also lucky to fly out of one of the busiest airports in the country – an accomplishment most pilots add to their bucket list.
Mach 1 Aviation pilots work with both experienced and new clients in the same manner. As one of the top flight training destinations at the Van Nuys Airport and as a Platinum Cirrus Training Center we assure that at every intersection during initial or recurrent training, the learning isn’t temporary but part of a solid foundation. Our objective is to ensure that every pilot we have the privilege of working with is equipped with the skills necessary to survive in the real world of aviation.
EXPERT FLIGHT TRAINING
Our focus as a flight school is attention on instructional quality. Each of our instructors is a grade above the rest in terms of the dedication to the training provided. Simply put, we care. Not about our top line. Not about hours. We care about the type of pilot you become after working with us. Our instructors focus on quality over quantity and ensure that each pilot they train walks away with both a practical understanding and a solid grasp of the surrounding theory.
