Barrett Aviation was started in Tucson, Arizona in early 2019. After a year of being a CFI in the desert skies, our founder Connor Barrett moved to Reno, NV. When he arrived in Reno, he saw a need for flight training in the northern Nevada skies. He chose the Home of Reno Air Races, Reno-Stead airport to start and open the Nevada branch of Barrett Aviation. With a great aviation community supporting Connor, he opened a friendly and welcoming location for aviators of all skills levels to meet and learn. Hand picking instructors and mentors, he built a team of experienced aviators to teach and guide fellow aviators on a path for blue skies and tailwinds.
