Flight training programs include:

  • FLT Zero to CFI

Yes. Not only does our pilot training put safety at the forefront, but so do our practices both in the air and on the ground— at every moment. Before our students test for their pilot’s rating, we make sure they are experts in safety, readily equipped with the knowledge and experience necessary to handle any situation. When you’re not in one of our aircraft, you can be assured that all of its maintenance needs are being met.

Our planes are inspected every 50 and 100 hours by our in-house seasoned mechanics. Each plane is seen by our maintenance staff twice a month and sometimes more. There is no expense spared in the maintenance and safety of our planes. It makes all the difference.

Program duration depends on the rating you are pursuing. In addition, we offer both accelerated and non-accelerated programs for students seeking a career track program. Speaking generally, however, students can obtain the proper pilot rating to enter into the workforce in aviation in as little as 12 months.

Yes. We help students obtain their commercial pilot’s certificate in as little as 12 months. Other ratings and certifications can be even further accelerated.

Again, this depends on the program, but certificated pilots must spend a good amount of time in the sky, as well as on the ground with a pencil in hand. In-air experience is critical and teaches valuable lessons that can’t be accomplished in a simulator alone. Our students will spend many hours in one of our 50 aircraft with a professional instructor during their flight training.
