Embry-Riddle Prescott Campus' Aircraft Fleet

The Embry-Riddle Prescott Flight Department has a commitment to safety, excellence, and professionalism that is second to none in the flight training community. That commitment is why the “Riddle Ramp” is home to the most technologically advanced fleet in collegiate flight training.

The ramp at the Prescott Flight Line boasts parking for more than 30 airplanes and 10 helicopters, and our instructors ensure that every student who steps into those aircraft receive the training they will need to not only meet the minimums required to gain a certificate, but become safe, professional pilots who have a truly positive impact on their industry.

Our thousands of alumni who fly some of the most advanced commercial and military aircraft today proves that Embry-Riddle is the world's leader in flight training.
