North-Aire, Inc. was established in 1973 to provide professional flight training. Since that time, North-Aire has built a reputation based on cost effective quality training. We provide student pilots with tightly focused programs geared to educating them to the highest level of competence, while preparing them for their first commercial pilot position. Our curriculum emphasized the line-oriented flight training, cockpit resource management and crew coordination concepts.
North-Aire’s base operations is Ernest A. Love Field, Prescott Municipal Airport, which is tower-controlled class Delta airspace with radar services, has published instrument approaches and is operational 24 hours a day. Prescott has parallel runways and a crosswind runway, eliminating departure and arrival delays often found at many other airports. The Prescott and Phoenix areas offer a multitude of published instrument approaches such as Instrument Landing Systems, Localizer, Localizer Backcourse, VOR, VOR/DME, NDB, RNAV, GPS and PAR approaches. This provides our students with the opportunity to fly every type of published instrument approach available in the Unites States.
North-Aire is an F.A.A. approved part 61 and part 141 flight school. North-Aire is also fully approved by US Immigration and Naturalization for foreign students. We accept the M-1 (I-20). As of October 1996, North-Aire has also been approved by the government of Manitoba, Canada as a financial aid approved Flight Training Center.
North-Aire is a designated testing site for Laser Grade Computer Testing. This gives our students the opportunity to take each of the required FAA knowledge (written) exams on the premises. Practice tests are available on our personal computers, allowing each student to practice before each of the FAA written examinations.
North-Aire is one of the few remaining International Accelerated Flight Training Centers in business. Our thanks and gratitude go out to all of our former students coming from all 50 states plus 47 foreign countries, and flight instructors who have made such an outstanding accomplishment possible. “Word of Mouth” from former students has always been our most successful form of advertising – we couldn’t have done it without you!
Additional facilities include student/instructor briefing areas and flight planning areas. Also available is a video viewing room, complete with a full library of video training tapes. Comprehensive weather reports, which include current satellite photographs, area and terminal forecasts, and weather depiction and diagnostic charts, are available. The hands-on analysis and interpretation of these graphical weather reports provides excellent meteorological training for our students.
We invite you to visit North-Aire and view our facilities, inspect the aircraft fleet and meet with other students and instructors. Please feel free to call and schedule a tour. We will be happy to meet you at the airport, help arrange accommodations during your stay.
You’re wondering – why Prescott, Arizona? Because we have more flyable days; the airport is a mile high so you get the advantage of “feeling” density altitude, and you have the advantage of mountain flying and beautiful scenery!
