Utah’s Premier Flight School

We train our pilots from start to finish, helping every step of the way, to ensure success.



Combining years of aviation experience and modern equipment with a fun and friendly operation that trains you from start to finish, with No contracts or penalties. CSA was founded to create a Flight Training Center that focuses on safety, proficiency and professionalism. CSA is far more than just a flight school. Our entire company is based around the goal of Excellence in Aviation Education. Rather than simply training pilots for check-rides, CSA educates and molds each student into safe, competent pilots capable of flying in the real world with their own families on board.


Cornerstone Aviation is devoted to excellence in flight training. We offer the best in aircraft and top notch instruction. This allows us to provide a memorable experience to our students. Our mission is to help you succeed.
