About Canyon State Aero

Canyon State Aero was founded in 2006, by two seasoned aviation professionals – Jan Sandberg and Steve Woodrum, who together over the course of their aviation careers have logged over 50,000 flight hours of combined flight experience.

Our Focus: Providing you with the best helicopter services possible.

From the very beginning, our Mesa Arizona flight school has focused on a single speciality – providing only the very best helicopter flight services, with special attention paid to overall flight safety.

Helicopter flight training from friendly experienced flight instructors.

If you’ve been frustrated while taking helicopter lessons from some of the more impersonal, inflexible flight schools out there, then Canyon State Aero is the helicopter flight school for you!

At Canyon State Aero, you’re not just a certification number and a check.
You’re someone who loves flying as much as we do.

Unlike some helicopter flight schools who seem to have more of a “certification mill” philosophy when it comes to teaching you how to fly, Canyon State Aero is dedicated to providing you with personalized helicopter flight training based on your individual goals, experience, budget and schedule.
