Our training.

LAT trains pilots on the Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) program and the Multi-Pilot License (MPL) program. You arrive in Goodyear after your theory course and have your first flights with us at LAT. After about 80 hours’ flying time in the aircraft and in the simulator, you are ready for the next step and you can move on to your instrument and multi-engine or jet training.


Training equipment.

Our current fleet consists of 24 Beechcraft Bonanza F33As – four of which are equipped with Garmin G500 systems – one F33C and seven Grob G120A airplanes.

Training environment.

The home base for student training is Goodyear Airport (GYR), located southwest of Phoenix, Arizona. With over 350 days of visual flying conditions, this is the perfect place to start a pilot career in a stable but demanding environment.

A few miles south of Goodyear Airport, LAT owns a training airport called Mobile Airport, which is equipped with an Instrument Landing System (ILS) to prepare you for the next step in your training.
