Needed my spin endorsement for my CFI rating. Mark King did my instruction and he was wonderful. Fun to fly with and very knowledgeable. A highly recommended "eye-opener" course that I believe everyone should do at least once (better still regularly).

Had an introductory Aerobatics flight with CP. Fantastic facilities and Instruction.

I was reintroduced to general aviation in 2013 and decided that it was time to get my private pilot’s license.  Fortunately, a good friend introduced me to Santa Paula Airport and CP Aviation.  I trained with Judy Phelps, Owner of CP Aviation and instructor Mark King.  The aviation community and atmosphere there is very supportive, it is the perfect place to learn to fly.  As all pilots know, a pilot’s license is a license to learn to fly.  There is always more to learn.  CP Aviation offers advanced flight training: tailwheel, Emergency Maneuver and Aerobatic training.  I recently had the pleasure of completing the EMT training at CP Aviation. It was a great confidence builder, has improved my pilot skills and was great FUN!

Hi Mark, Hi Judy

I’m finally back in cold and snowy Switzerland and I would like to say thank you for the great time I had at CP Aviation again. I’m sure I improved my flying skills and made a lot of new experiences! Very friendly and helpful staff, well maintained aircrafts and beautiful Santa Paula Airport! Hope I will be able to visit CP Aviation again in future.

Thanks again all the best!


In 2015 I was selected as the Vickie Cruse Memorial Scholarship winner for CP Aviation’s full EMT/Acro course developed by Rich Stowell. I received the news with a mixture of excitement and trepidation. CP Aviation’s reputation is well known, reaching all the way out to New York State where I live and work as a flight instructor. I knew I was being offered an a superb opportunity, but I worried whether I’d be up for the challenges presented by Emergency Maneuvers Training and Aerobatics, especially given some powerfully negative experiences I’d had in the past.

I’ve been flying for more than 25 years, and and have made my living in aviation for decades. Over the years, I developed some cynicism about flight instruction, especially when somebody claims to have all the answers. I am delighted to report that CP Aviation exceeded all my expectations. Judy Phelps and her team presented a challenging course that required me to fly at my best, but always gave me the tools I needed to understand the material and succeed. The aircraft were clean and well maintained, ready for dispatch and flew beautifully. With a waivered aerobatic box just a few miles off the end of the runway, we didn’t waste any time shuttling back and forth to the practice area. Most importantly, the teaching was highly professional. The material was presented in a way that provided ample time for discussion, and I always knew exactly what was going to happen before we strapped into the airplane.

Judy and Mark (King) stayed focused on making sure I was learning as much as possible, and didn’t waste any time trying to impress me, show off or polish their own egos. They challenged me to think about being “in control” in new ways, and I flew both harder and better than I ever have before. I came away from the experience with a tremendous sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. I know that I am a better pilot and a safer flight instructor thanks to the training I received there.
