Over 20 years serving the North/Central Alabama area.

Sanders Aviation was founded in 1996, by Joseph Gordon “Gordo” Sanders, Jr, in Jasper, Alabama, at the Walker County Airport – Bevill Field. Sanders founded the organization with a vision to spread his love of aviation through teaching others to fly; however, that was only the beginning. Through focus, drive, tenacity and perseverance, Sanders was able to expand Sanders Aviation into an all-encompassing mecca for aviation enthusiasts.

As an FAA approved flight schoolunder 14 CFR Part 141, Sanders Flight Training Center is able to efficiently train students under both Part 141 and Part 61.  By carefully curating courses under these regulations we are able to present our students with a training package that diligently protects their investment while minimizing overall time to train. Our students can rest assured that they are learning from the best in the industry. Combined, our instructors have over 60,000 hours of military fighter pilot, instructor pilot, and major airline experience. For those seeking check rides, from private pilot to multi-engine ATP’s, Joey "Gordo" Sanders is an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner(DPE) and conducts check rides onsite at Sanders Aviation.
