Leading Edge Aviation offers you the opportunity to pursue your future as a helicopter or airplane pilot through flight training in Bend, Oregon.

Flight instructors at Leading Edge Aviation specialize in training professional pilots as well as private aircraft owners through a tailored curriculum that focuses on the student’s personal goals. Operating at the Bend Municipal Airport, Leading Edge Aviation line service and maintenance staff work diligently each day to ensure that aircraft are in top shape. Helicopter students train in Robinson R22, Robinson R44 and Bell 206 series aircraft, while airplane students train in Cessna 172 and Beechcraft Bonanza or Baron aircraft. 

Always expanding their offerings and growing their facilities, Leading Edge Aviation puts the success of students first by focusing on investing in technology – such as a FRASCA Level 5 R44 Flight Simulator– and partnerships with companies focused on career-building, like SkyWest Airlines’ Pilot Pathway Program.

Those interested in pursuing a career in aviation can also consider achieving an Associate Degree in Aviation Science through Central Oregon Community College’s partnership with Leading Edge Aviation as the aircraft provider. The degree program is fully qualified for Veteran benefits and provides all students access to financial aid.
