About FLY. at Goodyear
FLY. ,previously known as Buckeye Flight Experience, has been training pilots in the Phoenix valley for over nine years. In 2013 we moved to the Goodyear airport to be closer to our students and to provide a quality atmosphere for our students to learn. We offer training for those looking to learn to fly for fun or those wanting to pursue a career in aviation.
We train for the Private, Commercial, Flight Instructor certificates and Instrument rating. We have the highest quality instruction as well as aircraft rentals and the best aircraft rental & hire rates in the Phoenix valley.
Our Mission Statement
To train safe, competent pilots at a reasonable rate; to share the joy and challenge of aviation.
We currently 7 aircraft in our fleet. The mainstays are our 4 Cessna 172SP aircraft. Three are fully IFR equipped (N293SP & N660JW) and the other (N347ME) is VFR only. Many students choose to complete their training on ME for the simple fact that it's a little cheaper. However, all 3 planes are fine for completing your private certificate, with SP able to take you through most of your commercial certificate and instrument rating.
In addition to these 3 aircraft we also have a Piper Archer (N7194C). Currently this aircraft is only available for dual instruction - no solos. For those who want to add a multi-engine rating, we also have a Piper Comanche (N7072Y).
