Welcome to Glass Cockpit Aviation, Idaho's award winning flight school.
We have been awarded an AOPA Flight Training Excellence Award again for 2014. Only one other school in the Northwest has this distinction.

If you are serious about your flight training, accelerated training is the only method you will want to consider. You will find the knowledge retention and cost savings superior to other methods.
The military and the airline industry use accelerated training for a reason. We use these same tools of efficiency and technology that will immerse you in a training environment using the most advanced training tools and the most experienced instructors (they average over 3000 hours each).
