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.

Career Program Essentials:

• Part 141 curriculum approved at every campus means an absolute interest in training quality and safety. The ability to utilize Part 141 and Part 61 training on a course-by-course and "individual student performance" basis allows faster completion and more hours available to students, if there is a need for additional training for proficiency.

• Fly every type of aircraft in our fleet during your program, or stick to one or two. We want you to have fun.

• Experience different aerospace by flying each course of your program at a different campus location. Fly a little in upstate and downtown New York, tour the Carolina skies and cruise with the big boys in Atlanta.

• You've worked hard to become a CFI and we're not going to place you behind a desk with a phone to work Admissions or simply teach ground school. We're going to put you to work in the air so you can log your necessary hours to get you to 1500. You can continue to teach and grow with us if the airlines aren't the right fit for you. The airlines aren't the only career option -- Chief Pilots, Designated Pilot Examiners, Operations Managers, Aviation Safety Inspectors are all in demand.

• Academy of Aviation's unique Tuition Reimbursement Program pays down what you’ve borrowed for your loan in addition to any airline tuition reimbursement and bonuses. We do not simply rely on the airlines' participation for their tuition reimbursement.
