Vista Air Inc.

Our Fleet

There are a lot of benefits when training or renting here at Vista:

Here at Vista, we own all our aircraft. We have our own FBO; meaning when our airplanes need to be maintained they are only gone for a few hours instead of weeks compared to other schools. All our prices for the aircraft are “wet” (include Fuel).

We are located at Whiteman Airport in the East end of the San Fernando Valley, with the luxury of relatively low-traffic airport. Which means less time being spent waiting on clearance to takeoff and more time flying. Our two practice areas are located over Santa Clarita and Simi Valley, CA.

We are constantly looking for ways to improve our aircraft. Whether it be through our extensive avionics’ upgrades to our fleet, STCs for 94UL, or through other means, we are committed to our customers’ safety and concerns. 

EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2022

A FUEL SURCHARGE WILL BE IMPLEMENTED

 

FUEL PRICES HAVE INCREASED SUBSTANTIALLY SINCE OUR PRICES HAVE BEEN POSTED. WE HAVE WAITED AS LONG AS WE COULD TO DO THIS.

 

WE WILL ADJUST THIS CHARGE – HOPEFULLY LOWER – AS SOON AS WE CAN.

Vista Air's Redbird LD Flight Simulator

 
We are excited to announce that we received our REDBIRD LD Flight Simulator.
 
Expand your training capabilities and keep your skills sharp. The versatile Redbird LD is the perfect solution for our flight school and individual pilots that need the power of a Redbird simulator. Like the FMX and SD, the LD is FAA certified as an Advanced Aviation Training Device and comes equipped with all of the standard features of a Redbird SD, but without a cockpit enclosure and pilot seats.
 

The Redbird LD is ideal with its wrap-around visuals, realistic feedback flight controls, and interchangeable cockpits. It’s a fantastic addition for the individual pilot dedicated to maintaining instrument currency and keeping skills sharp when they can’t be flying the real thing. It’s also ideal when practicing emergency procedures during your training.

All prices are based on Hobbs time

  • $80 per hour
