Glendale, Arizona ñ Arizona Flight Training Center has developed several programs for military aviators who are looking to transition to the world of civilian aviation. These programs include both flight and ground training for ATP, multi and single-engine ratings, as well as initial and add-on flight instructor ratings.

AZFTC President and Chief Flight Instructor, Rick Rademaker commented, ìI have been training military pilots to transition to civilian aviation for over 10 years with an excellent success rate. I consider this to be the hallmark example of our expertise at Arizona Flight Training Center.î

Major Torsten Wagner of the German Air Force, recently received his multi and single-engine ATP, as well as CFI single-engine add-on ratings. ìMy training at AZFTC was exactly as expected with no surprises. The instructor and examiner both knew their jobs well and I was able to complete my training in minimal time. I highly recommend AZFTC to anyone who wants to work with a company that ëgets the big pictureí and can deliver as promised the training required to pass the FAA check-rides,î remarked Major Wagner.

The ATP multi-engine course can be completed in two working days and the single-engine add-on in one. CFI ratings vary, depending on experience and the rating sought. AZFTCís experienced staff of instructors and pilot examiners will be able to provide any military professional with a course of training that assures that he or she will meet the level of competency required to pass the ATP or CFI check-ride in the shortest amount of time possible.

Arizona Flight Training Center is based at the Glendale Municipal Airport (KGEU), in Glendale, Arizona. AZFTC offers a full range of ratings from flight instructors with over 2,000 hours of experience. The fleet includes aircraft from the Piper Seneca and Cessna 152, to the more cost effective, Garmin GNS-430 equipped, Cessna 172 as the core training platform.
