Choose any of our locations if you want to learn one-on-one, on your schedule, in an accelerated fashion, or in a traditional classroom-based, full-time scenario.

Book a Discovery Flight First

If you’re not 100% convinced that a pilot license needs to be in your future, take the time to see what training will be like. A Discovery Flight allows prospective students to participate in a short lesson, a facility tour, and a flight with a Certified Flight Instructor. Not only will you get to take the helm of the aircraft at some point during the flight, but it will also count as the initial hour of flight time you’ll need to accumulate credentials. Afterward, we can discuss a bespoke program – just for you – that will consider your time, finances, and goals. This plan will be your map of your aviation future. Remember, the difference between a dream and a goal is planning and a timeline.

Book the P3 Program

The P3 – Professional Pilot Program – is also available. This program is ideal if you’re ambitious, driven, and fully convinced that you want to work as a pilot. You’ll need to have full-time availability and a strong work ethic because this intense program pushes you to earn all of the following credentials in 38 weeks, saving you time and money:

  • Private Pilot License (PPL)
  • Instrument Flight Rating (IFR)
  • Commercial Single-Engine License (CSEL)
  • Commercial Multi-Engine License (CMEL)
  • Certified Flight Instructor (CFI).
