World-Class Flight School Instruction in Los Angeles

Once you’ve obtained your private pilot certificate, the next step would be to receive additional training by getting an instrument rating. As an instrument rated pilot, you open up another avenue for flying that isn’t available as a private pilot.

During your instrument training you’ll learn many things, including:

  • How to navigate your aircraft through little to no visibility with your instruments as your only source of reference
  • How to fly on those cloudy days that would ground you as a private pilot, also makes you a better pilot for those clear beautiful days
  • Log ground training
  • FAA regulations
  • The various navigation instruments

Our Los Angeles flight training center provides comprehensive pilot training instructions that adhere to the aviation industry’s safety standards and procedures. We improve flight proficiency and reinforce competency in the air and on the ground. You will learn a solid foundation of skills that you can build on as you continue to grow as a pilot. When it comes to world-class flight training, Mach 1 Aviation is the best choice.

  • One of the most knowledgeable CFIs I have ever flown with

    “Decided to actually finish my private pilot training and was looking around for a school. I have about 65 hours in a Cessna but was thinking about finishing in a Cirrus. That is what attracted me to Mach 1. After talking with a couple friends who fly they talked me out of the Cirrus for now and convinced me to finish on the Cessna. My first lesson didn’t happen. The student from the day before left the master switch on and the battery was dead. Not the fault of the school. So I had a choice to go home or fly. So we went and got the keys to an SR20 and took a nice stroll though the skies over So Cal. The Cirrus was amazing but not really something that I am ready to convert to. I scheduled another flight with Jason and he might be one of the most knowledgeable CFIs I have ever flown with. He pointed out some really important bad habits that I have that only a real professional would know. We were up for almost 2 hours and it felt great. I was pretty rusty but it is like riding a bike. My first power off stall was great. I slammed the yoke in a little hard and we were diving at a 75 degree angle. Their planes are the newest fleet at KVNY. It was my first time flying with an all glass cockpit and it was so much nicer than I could have ever imagine. Everything is clean and well maintained. Tanks were full and ready so there wasn’t much time wasted. Looking forward to my next appointment tomorrow. Going to take one of the triplets who has never been in a plane before. I think I am more excited than him!”

  • Professional, knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend both Jason and Mach 1.

    “I have a heavy background in Customer Service (Disney) and can easily distinguish between those who do their job for money vs. those who do it for passion. Jason is definitely the latter. Professional, knowledgeable and personable. I highly recommend both him and Mach 1.”

  • The aircraft are immaculate and all fairly new, and the office manager/flight dispatcher Sarah was extremely helpful.

    “I could not have had a better experience. The instructors are enthusiastic, knowledgable and incredibly talented. The aircraft are immaculate and all fairly new, and the office manager/flight dispatcher Sarah was extremely helpful.”

  • It’s truly been a blessing that I chose Mach 1 as my flight school. I would recommend them to anyone.

    “I can’t say enough great things about Mach 1 and their staff. Professional and friendly service is all they know how to offer and their flight line is the best on the field. Their facility alone makes it a pleasureable expereience [sic]. My instructor was extremely patient and knowledgeable about not only aviation and instructing, but the aircraft itself. The instructional quality is unprecedented. It’s truly been a blessing that I chose Mach 1 as my flight school. I would recommend them to anyone.”

  • Mach 1 Aviation is the ultimate flight school in the San Fernando Valley. After renting for over 20 years, I finally found home. Mach 1 has modern “like new” state-of-the art aircraft which are well maintained and always clean.

    “Mach 1 Aviation is the ultimate flight school in the San Fernando Valley. After renting for over 20 years, I finally found home. Mach 1 has modern “like new” state-of-the art aircraft which are well maintained and always clean. The terminal is impressive, the amenities from the coffee to the pilots lounge are exceptional. Above all, the entire staff is super friendly, professional, and truly a pleasure. I feel privileged to be part of Mach 1 and wish you much success! Thank you for your great service.”
