Welcome to Tucson Flight School
Your success depends on the flight instruction you choose....
Did you know less than .0018% of the U.S. population has a pilot's license?
Do you have the inner drive to be in that category?
If you have the drive and commitment to do what's necessary to earn your pilot's certificate or simply want to add ratings on your way to becoming an airline pilot, we are here to assist you with your goals.
Want to become an airline pilot? There's never been a better time than today. The airlines are hiring now more than ever before. If this is your dream, it would be our pleasure to help get you there.

Erwin Winkler, CFII
Chief Flight Instructor
Erwin is a former naval officer and an FAA designated Gold Seal Flight Instructor. His depth of instruction ranges from teaching flight instruction at the University of Oklahoma's School of Aviation Studies to a prestigious military academy to many hours of private lessons.
Erwin has helped many students accomplish their dream of becoming a private pilot or adding ratings and endorsements to their pilot certificates.
What airport do you operate out of?
We operate out of Marana Regional Airport (KAVQ).
How long have you been involved in flight instruction?
What certifications and/or endorsements can Tucson Flight School assist with?
Private Pilot Certificate, Instrument Rating, Commercial Certificate (A.S.E.L,) Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC's,) Complex Endorsement, High-Performance Endorsement, CFI and CFII. We also conduct bi-annual flight reviews.
What makes Tucson Flight School different than most flight schools?
Many students come to us after they've been through one, two, three or more flight instructors without receiving a pilot's certificate or even soloing for their first time. Too many flight instructors are simply trying to build up their hours and care very little about the success of their students. At Tucson Flight School, we help students get across the finish line on their way to fulfilling their dream of becoming a pilot. When the day comes for your checkride with an FAA examiner, you will be well-prepared having chosen Tucson Flight School for your flight instruction.
Do you offer ground instruction in addition to flight instruction?
While we highly recommend online programs for ground school due to the cost-effectiveness of that choice, we do offer ground instruction if students wish for more in-depth instruction or in preparation for their FAA written exams.
What other questions should I be asking when considering taking flying lessons?
You should be considering the qualifications of the instructor you choose. Many instructors are new to teaching others how to fly. There's nothing wrong with this, as we all have to start somewhere, however, unless you want to be someone's test subject, you should chose a flight instructor who has many hours of flight instruction, has had many students cross the finish line, and most importantly, is teaching because they want to teach rather than just trying to build up their time on their way to the airlines.
Congrats to some recent students!
