RUN. Fleet is in horrible shape, two fatal accidents since 2011. They treat you to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, get your money, then screw you over. As soon as I caught on to the act, I left. It didn´t take long. Avoid this joke of a school at all costs. Watch out for the fuel surcharge, it can get nasty without adequate warning. Also, they say they switch flight instructors on you all the time during the instrument and higher 141 courses because they feel it doesn´t make a difference because they´re all feeding you the same material. Disgusting attitude. The instructor student pair is crucial to a good training experience and clearly they don´t care about that. Jim Stanton

I got to know about Phoenix East Aviation from their partner After getting in touch with them, the admission officer at guided me step by step towards getting a good score in TOEFL, getting an i20 and helped me a lot for preparing me for my Embassy Interview. We had numerous video calls and he made me practice over 40 questions!! None of the other schools helped me in this regard. Since I´m from India, they did a DGCA orientation workshop for me. My experience has been amazing as yet :-) I strongly recommend and Phoenix East Aviation. Clyde
