Whether it’s for pleasure or profit there are few feelings like taking the controls of an aircraft.

Learning to fly can be both challenging and rewarding. With sunshine almost every day, but temperatures much cooler than the Phoenix area, there is no better place to learn to fly than in Benson Arizona.


You can get flight training anywhere, but at SouthWestern Aviation our goal is not only to provide great flight training at a reasonable cost, we want to take it a step further and teach you what’s on the other side. Upset attitude training, aerobatics, glider, and tail-wheel are a few things we consider important steps to making you a better pilot. We want SouthWestern Aviation to be a place where you come to sharpen your skills as a pilot.
