Skyraider Aviation is a flying club serving pilots and students interested in flying for fun. From a facility at Erie Municipal Airport just north of Denver, Colorado we offer their members aircraft rentals/sales, flight training, and aviation merchandise. Skyraider Aviation operates as a commercial flying club. Flight training and aircraft rentals are available only to members of the club, while aircraft sales and aviation merchandise are available to members and non-members alike. Membership in the club is subject to a $35 initiation fee, a $35 monthly membership fee, and adherence to a strict set of rules and standards meant to ensure the safety of the club members and the club aircraft.
Simply stated, a Sport Pilot is very restricted as to how, when, what, and where he flies. Consequently, the training required to earn a sport pilot license is significantly less than that required to earn a private pilot license. One of the biggest restrictions placed on sport pilots is that they can only fly light sport aircraft (LSA) . Generally speaking, an LSA is a small, two-seat, uncomplicated airplane that is fun and easy to fly. It is limited in size, weight, speed and capacity. By dealing only with sport pilots and light sport aircraft, Skyraider Aviation can provide a fun and exciting flying experience for a fraction of the cost of traditional general aviation companies.
