What Sets Us Apart

WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY

We are a mid-size school focused on quality. This allows us to get to know all of our students, not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level. This ensures that we align our training program with your specific aviation goals.

Another benefit of a smaller school, is that we can personally provide job placement assistance to every new CFI who graduates from Glacier with a motivated, and professional attitude. With two convenient locations in Washington State, placing pilots in jobs within our own company is very promising. In fact, most of our current pilots and instructors are former Glacier students.

What Our Students Are Saying

Family, Tradition and Legacy

There is no doubt the quality training I received from Glacier aviation prepared me for the challenging environments I have operated in all over the world. Glacier has the quality instructors and training locations that will help any student build the skills necessary to succeed in this industry. I would recommend my own friends and family to attend Glacier before any other school in the country. When students sign up at Glacier one thing they don't realize is they become a part of something bigger than they expect. They become part of a family, a tradition and a legacy that all past students and instructors are proud to be a part of.

Excellent Instructors

Glacier was like a second home for me and my son Kai. Mike and Lori have made Glacier very inviting, comfortable and accepting. The Training is always top notch with excellent instructors. Everyone there is always willing to go out of their way to help others out and to make everyone feel welcome and part of their family

Outstanding Training

Outstanding training and even better people! From the moment I walked in the door I was treated like family and those relationships last to this day. I couldn't have asked for a better experience than I got at Glacier Aviation.

Professional and Efficient

Glacier is a great training environment. The atmosphere is friendly, family-oriented, all while being professional and efficient. While there I made professional networking relationships that exposed me to future jobs, and make personal friendships that I know will last a lifetime.

It’s like a family

Within my first week of flying at Glacier working on my instrument rating, I realized that I learned more in that first week at Glacier than I did during a full year at another flight school. Shortly after I completed my instrument rating I had the chance to join the Glacier team by working on the ramp and behind the front desk. I jumped at the opportunity and got to know so many wonderful people all striving toward the same goal. Glacier isn’t just a flight school, it’s like a family. Everyone works really hard as well as having a good time outside of training. If you are looking for a good flight school that will get you all the training you need to become a career pilot then Glacier is the right place, regardless if it’s airplane or helicopter.

Some of the Best Training Available

I was and still am very grateful to Mike Thielen and Glacier Aviation for the training I received. I have at various points in my career discussed with fellow pilots the manner in which they learned to fly and I have always come to the same conclusion that Glacier Aviation provides some of the best training available. There isn't a day that goes by where I feel I don't rely on something that I was taught or learned at Glacier.

Joel Prybylski - Des Moines, IA

A Great Fit for Me

Glacier was a great fit for me as I live in Montesano, WA. The training was stellar! Mike and Gary were like family to me. I couldn't speak higher of a school than this one. If you are looking at a flying career you can’t go wrong with this school.

Bryce Mode - Las Vegas, NV

Great Flight School

Glacier Aviation was an enjoyable place to train. Everything from the weather environment to the mountainous terrain to the experience of the instructors prepared me for what I was to face at one point or another in my aviation career. I am thankful that I was able to train at a great flight school and I highly recommend Glacier for anyone with the desire to begin their path into the incredible world of aviation!
