My son found Cornerstone when he was 15. Since then he finished ground school classes and then was flying with his instructor. Today he passed stage 1 test for private pilot license. People in cornerstone are very professional, at the same time so nice and helpful. Thanks cornerstone for helping out with my son’s dream. I recommend this school to anybody that has a dream of flying!read more

Wow! What can I say! I'm a pilot with over 1500 hrs in singles that was looking to get back into flying with the prospect of many new job opportunities. After a less than stellar experience at a part 61 school that I went to for my multi-engine add-on rating, I found Susan and her team at Cornerstone. She took the time out of her day to go over their curriculum and provided me with the study materials necessary for successfully completing the check-ride! Once you familiarize yourself with her and the rest of the team at Cornerstone's very accomplished history in the pilot-training business, you'll know your training is in the very best of hands!read more

Susan and staff are great! They are helping my son to start his ratings early (as a high school student) and use their affiliation with Liberty University to start acquiring college credits early. As an aviation family, Cornerstone's traditional fleet of aircraft was very important to us. And, having a facility in both Salt Lake and Ogden is really helpful for our family!read more

I‘m a first officer at Skywest Airlines and I achieved my goals of becoming an airline pilot at Cornerstone Aviation. Cornerstone created a fun training environment where I could earn my licenses but also discover my passion for aviation. The accelerated training program allowed me to go as fast as my schedule would allow. Their many financing options allowed me to pay for training that I could never have paid for on my own.They provide safe, clean, reliable aircraft with the latest equipment. I was a student and an instructor at CSA and I loved training there almost as much as I loved instructing there.read more

I am currently a first officer at skywest airlines. I was an instructor and a student at Cornerstone aviation. Without cornerstone aviation I could not have achieved my goals of becoming an airline pilot. As a student I was allowed to work at a pace that fit my schedule and finished all of my ratings in 1 year including commercial single and multi-engine ratings as well as my CFI rating. When I finished my CFI rating, I had 220 hours of flight time. I was given a multitude of options for financial aid to find a plan that worked for my situation. Many of my fellow students and instructors now have positions at airline or cargo operations and have achieved their dream of being a professional pilot.read more

I'm working to earn a private pilot license and am enjoying the CSA training immensely. I've been pleased with the quality of instruction provided thus far by the very professional Cornerstone team. Once I have my PPL, I plan to stay with Cornerstone and work on an instrument rating. I'm learning to fly purely for fun, but under Cornerstone's FAA-approved Part 141 program I feel as if I'm training toward becoming an airline pilot. I like that, because I want friends and family to feel safe when I take them flying.read more
