About Our Facility
APS Arizona is a featured tenant of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport (KIWA). In addition to being just a 40-minute drive from the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, KIWA itself is served by Allegiant Airlines operating to and from a variety of locations throughout the United States. Serviced by three 9,000’+ runways, KIWA supports several major flight schools, including the University of North Dakota, Arizona State University, and all Airline Transport Pilots (ATP) in addition to APS. Occasioned by regular military traffic, the airport has booming fixed-base flight operations, a transient ramp, flight line cafe, and corporate jet services. The training airspace used by APS Arizona is just a short three minute flight from the airport where the APS team enjoys designated operating airspace outside of Class B airspace and deconfliction from the busy operations of both KIWA and Sky Harbor Airport.
Phoenix supports professional football, hockey, basketball, and baseball teams in addition to a wide variety of performing arts, museums, and cultural centers. Whether you are coming as an individual pilot, flight crew or with your entire family, APS Arizona and its surrounding attractions will make your visit educational, fun, and memorable.
