Our accelerated programs, one on one attention, and continuous quality control is what separates Florida Aviation Academy from every other flight training institution.

Everything we do is a function of this mission.

Florida Aviation Academy has 20 years experience training pilots. We have used FAA approved 141 syllabi for our training.  Students come to our school with many different experience levels, and we are able to meet their needs due to our flexible training method. Our new 250-hour commercial program is second to none and has been designed to train an applicant to be a commercially licensed pilot with more flight hours than a 141 program and amazingly for the same price, guaranteed.   

Florida Aviation Academy’s Accelerated Approach

Florida Aviation Academy has a unique approach to flight training.  Our philosophy is to keep a low student/instructor/aircraft ratio (maximum of 2 students per aircraft and per flight instructor) at the school at any given time so that we can immerse the students in their studies with special emphasis on their flying.

Florida Aviation Academy’s 0 hours to Commercial License takes 16 weeks in comparison to 8-12 months offered by most other flight schools and colleges for the same program. During this time the students will earn their Private License, Instrument Rating, fly approximately 120 Hours of Solo Cross Country for time building and ultimately earn their Single or Multi Commercial Licenses at 250 hours under FAA Part 61 regulations. This program has been developed for individuals who want to become professional pilots. It prepares them for the fast paced and multi-tasked environment that is common to all air carriers.

Each instructor has only one or two full time students and all instruction is one on one, in contrast to the traditional classroom approach. This method allows individualized attention and is custom tailored to maximize efficiency of each student’s program. Every student is scheduled for two, two-hour lessons with their instructor. The time in between is used for studying on computer stations or watching the audio-visual tapes that compliment each day’s lesson. Students typically spend 6-8 hours a day at the school, 6 days a week under this program.

This offers many benefits for the student. Immersion in both theory and flight leads to steeper learning curve over time with better retention rates. This translates into cost savings for the student on many fronts. Our students are also more proficient and safer in their flying. This is simply due to the fact that flight lessons take place twice a day 6 days a week rather than 3-4 times per week at most other schools. Practice makes perfect. Practice often and … It allows the students to be away from their homes or jobs for a shorter period of time reducing day to day living expenses at least by half.

Florida Aviation Academy limits the student count so that there are no scheduling problems with either the instructors or the aircraft and we can deliver what we promise. We have over 95% success rate for being on time and within budget.

This approach has one additional benefit. Having low student/instructor ratio allows us to follow each student’s progress on a daily basis so that they stay on track with their scheduled programs. The daily briefings that the chief instructor has with each instructor allows Florida Aviation Academy to address any learning challenges immediately.
