Denver-based Independence Aviation has opened a second satellite operation at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC) in Colorado.
IA opened its first satellite office in July 2011 in the Colorado jetCenter at the Colorado Springs Municipal Airport (COS). The full slate of services available at the company’s headquarters in Centennial Airport (APA) in Englewood will now be available in all three IA locations, ranging from flight training and pilot services to aircraft management.
The BJC operation will also serve as the base for IA’s new light-sport aircraft (LSA) program. Aviation students can earn Sport Pilot certificates in about half the time and for about half the cost of a traditional Private Pilot certificate, officials note.
IA’s entire Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) corps, embodying a wide range of aviation experience and expertise, will be available at all three locations. The same is true of the company’s aircraft fleet that includes models by Piper, Diamond, Beechcraft and Cessna, in addition to Cirrus aircraft. Independence Aviation is a Cirrus Platinum Training Center, a prestigious designation awarded by Cirrus Aircraft to only a small band of flight operations worldwide.
