Talk to our admissions and enrollment specialists about financing your flight training at Atlanta Regional Airport/Falcon Field.

About Us:

We welcome and teach both career/commercial airline and private recreational flight students at all of our locations.

Want to fly for fun?
Academy of Aviation has locations in Farmingdale and White Plains NY, Charlotte NC and Atlanta GA. You will fly small planes in the same airspace as major flights, and learning to become a pilot in these airspaces will give you the experience and confidence to fly anywhere.

If you are career-minded:
One of the most compelling comparisons between Academy of Aviation and a four-year college is the time/money factor. Unlike a full-time college commitment, we immerse you into the world of pilot training for the full duration of your experience. If you’ve got your heart set on a career as a pilot, our Accelerated Career Pilot Program will put you on a direct course to your goal in much less time, and for less money than a college or university.

Academy of Aviation enables you to train at a flight school recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Academy of Aviation is overseen by the Bureau of Proprietary School Supervision (BPSS) which monitors non-degree granting proprietary schools. Academy of Aviation is regarded as a school of excellence as accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).

A central distinction between an independent FAA-certified instructor and the Career Pilot track at Academy of Aviation is determined by our ACCSC Accreditation. ACCSC serves as the designated institutional accrediting agency for 700 trade and technical schools that provide quality vocational education to over 150,000 students each year.

As an enrollee of Academy of Aviation's Accelerated Career Pilot Program, we encourage students to apply for a Certified Flight Instructor job upon graduation.

A position as an AOA flight instructor allows you to build experience and flight time; in about 18-22 months, you can build the flight experience required for the ATP Certificate and 1500-hour airline hiring minimums. The Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certificate is the highest level of aircraft pilot certificate.
