"Flying at CalAir is a dream!"

Most importantly, I know that I can trust the airplanes and the maintenance schedule. I know that the facility is top-notch and will make any client of mine feel comfortable and confident as they walk in the door of the FBO. There is every variety of Cirrus a renter could want, and easy scheduling with Jonathan or the online scheduler. Communication is great at CalAir, and there’s always a friendly face to wave to over at KHHR. CalAir has a great facility and location, and I am happy to bring pilots to the school and also rent their aircraft myself! Thanks, CalAir!

"I've had the pleasure of flying with CalAir for many years."

You will be hard pressed to find a better aviation program with the same caliber of instruction, emphasizing on safety and incorporating the latest, cutting edge technology in their new fleet of Cirrus airplanes. When it comes to Cirrus and Southern California, there is only one choice.

"I fly with CalAir because they have the largest fleet of Cirrus aircraft in SoCal..."

…maintained to the highest level, and are affordable. I have done my private pilot, my instrument rating and now I’m working toward my commercial license, all with CalAir. Jonathan Lucas and his instructors are top-notch and make the challenging process of flight training safe, enjoyable, and highly rewarding. The training I’ve received from CalAir allows me to confidently fly persons in need to their destinations, in airplanes that are safe and comfortable with modern avionics and up to date software. I highly recommend CalAir for all who want to learn what it’s like to fly the best general aviation airplane out there as well as to those who are licensed and want to rent from a solid fleet of aircraft.
