Why Choose Angle of Attack AEROnautics
for your Flight Education?
Great people! Always fun to fly with them! I think everyone should at least go have an introductory flight to see what they are missing out on! Monte is a great pilot and instructor! Wish I would have started my training 25-30 years ago instead of waiting till now!

I’m a Army Blackhawk pilot, looking at my civilian options and decided to join the RTP program through Skywest. My flight school in Utah was lagging and kept pushing my multi-engine add on rating back (2 months from original date). I contacted Monte Belgarde through Angle of Attack and within a couple weeks I was in MT flying his Cessna 310. I completed my add on rating first time go, flew the required ATP amount of 25 hours, with an additional 5 hours of sim, all within a 8 day period. His program is structured although he’s a part 61 school, which is conducive for my learning style. Highly recommend.

Monte with Angle of Attack AEROnautics is more than a outstanding instructor. I have been learning a lot from him at a pace and understanding that works amazing for me. I would always recommend Monte Belgarde to anyone looking to become a pilot in any area! Thank you! From myself and family Cole Guidoni!!

Monte is awesome. I’m still somewhat shocked with his level of comfort letting me pilot an aircraft. I highly recommend AoAA!

Monte Belgarde is an outstanding flight instructor. Taking flying lessons with him was a great experience because he provided insights drawn from not only his vast knowledge of aviation but also his personal experience from a lifetime of flying. Most importantly, he truly cares about the success of his students and training them to be successful, knowledgeable, and safe pilots.

Highly recommend Angle of Attack Aeronautics for all levels of flight training. Monte was able to get me trained up and checked out for my Commercial Multi-Engine checkride in record time. I came to him on extremely short notice and he was kind enough to work me into his schedule and help a fellow pilot. Monte is a class act. Thanks again for everything.
– Stefan Knowles, WA
Monte is a top-notch flight instructor and a blast to be around. I would highly recommend him to anyone interesting in getting started flying or continuing their education in aeronautics. Thanks Monte.

Coming to Butte is a treat for me since that is when I get an opportunity to go flying with Monte Belgarde. He is a first-rate flight instructor and a really fun person to share a cockpit with. He gave me my first opportunity to fly a twin-engine plane and was that ever FUN!
With loving Blessings,

If you are looking for a fun and positive flight training experience, look no farther than Monte at Angle of Attack AEROnautics. He enjoys teaching and his passion for flying rubs off on those he trains. You have a choice. You can either learn from a young guy who is mainly concerned about building flight time for himself, or you can go with an instructor who loves to fly and truly enjoys teaching the next generation of pilots the skills they need for a long and rewarding career.
– Eddie Sand, Chandler, AZ
This is the place if you want to learn to fly! Monte the instructor is super professional and has the attitude/demeanor to teach people. Even if they know nothing at all about flying like me. With hands on and advanced simulator training he can get you in the air with confidence!
