At Glacier, the unique flight training program not only teaches students how to fly, it gives them the training they need to find a job in the industry. From private to commercial, certified flight instructor (CFI) to instrument ratings, all pilots will get what they need from our top-notch instructors. Glacier also has an FAA examiner on staff to make check rides hassle free. We are an FAA Lasergrade written test center.
At Glacier we give you practical flying experience. In order to provide such a wide range of training, a variety of aircraft are required. That is why the Glacier helicopter fleet includes the Robinson R22, R44, and MD 500. The Glacier airplane fleet includes the Cessna 152 and 172/172RG, and our new Piper Warrior II low wing aircraft. Besides the different aircraft, Glacier also offers a variety of terrain and weather conditions due to its location. Western Washington is gifted with mountains, rivers, and forests. We don’t just simulate adverse conditions on the airport. Our instructors actually take their students to the local snowy areas, river beds, and logging roads, which are within minutes of the flight school.
