One of life’s great adventures is learning to fly. Surrounded by some of the beautiful Wasatch mountains, which besides being great to look at are also a great wind block. Don’t worry about tornadoes messing up your flights, Salt Lake City’s Great Wasatch Wall will block them.
Or if you just wish to get your Commercial Pilots License, then start your aviation career with ULA and earn your commercial pilot ratings.
The airspace around the United States’ busiest airports is designated as Class B (Bravo). The reason for this Class B designation is to help reduce the possibility of collisions in mid-air. There are less than fifty U.S. airports designated as Class “Bravo” and Salt Lake International Airport is one of those airports.
This is a tremendous advantage to those seeking private pilot training in Utah and those looking to be commercial student pilots. Because a pilot may need to fly into or out of a Class B designated airport at some point in their career, it would be beneficial and safer if the pilot had trained in a Class B airspace. You have plenty of options.
