Valley Aviation has a diverse fleet of training and rental aircraft. Our primary training aircraft consist of six Cessna Skyhawk's, both M and N models. The Skyhawk is used to obtain your Private Pilot certificate and instrument rating and are equipped with either Garman 430 or 530 GPS. Training for a “complex” rating is achieved in a Piper Arrow. The Arrow is equipped with a Garman 530 GPS, has a variable pitch propeller, retractable landing gear, auto pilot and air conditioning. A Piper Aztec is used for multi-engine training and high-performance certification. The Aztec is equipped with a Garman 530 GPS, twin, 250 horse power engines with variable pitch propellers, retractable landing gear, auto pilot, air conditioning and is certified to fly in icing conditions. For tail-wheel endorsements, Valley Aviation uses a A-1 Huskey.
