How many times have you dreamed of flying an airplane or even becoming a professional pilot? Whether it is for pure fun and excitement or pursuing a new career in aviation, learning to fly is surprisingly easier and more affordable than many people think.

T&C Aero can put you in the pilot's seat at any pace or budget you choose. You select any time of day, evening or weekend and the number of training sessions per week that best suits your schedule.  T&C Aero provides full service Part 61 flight training from Sierra Vista Municipal Airport (FHU) in Sierra Vista, Arizona as well as
Safford, AZ (KSAD) and Phoenix/Deer Valley, AZ (KDVT).  We specialize in flight training, endorsements, rental check-outs, and flight reviews.  Unlike other Part 61 instructors we leverage the latest in technology to provide you with the best possible learning experience for your money.  Below are just a few reasons why you should train with us:

In-Flight HD Video & Audio



The aircraft is equipped with a cockpit video system that records each training flight for later study at home. This provides students with a permanent video record of each lesson and affords them a unique opportunity to review lessons learned in each training flight.  Share your flights with others.  Also use for debriefing flights to further absorb learning points of the flight.


In-flight HD video and audio recording improves the effectiveness of every hour you spend in the air. By enabling the replay of complete flights and/or specific flight segments after the flight you will dramatically improve your comprehension, awareness and confidence.  Flight playback functionality also give the instructor the ability to teach from outside the cockpit, enabling debriefing to occur after solo flights.


You receive a video record of every training flight you take with us.


GPS Flight Tracking with Cloud Ahoy


Using these tools you can examine your training flight tracks to almost any level of detail. This is helpful for ground based maneuvers, traffic patterns, cross-country (including traffic pattern entry), approaches and holding patterns, and any phase of flight requiring ground reference.   It is particularly helpful for student solo cross countries as it provides a record that the student can use with the instructor upon return to enable a meaningful critique of the studentís performance.  The flight track data files are provided to the student following each lesson for viewing and analysis between sessions and also enhance understanding of the flight video playback.

Foreflight & Electronic Flight Bag


The mobile and multi-media capabilities of the Apple IPAD are exploited in your ground training by allowing video and graphic training aids to augment oral instruction and deepen understanding of aeronautical subject matter.

During flight training you will learn to use the in-flight capabilities of the newest Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) software such as Foreflight to vastly improve your situational awareness.  EFB capabilities
include electronic sectional charts with flight tracking, pre flight planning tools, and electronic E6B flight computer capabilities.
