Academy of Aviation Flight School - Campus Information

Main Campuses in New York
Farmingdale, Long Island and White Plains, NY

Academy of Aviation operates in three locations and is growing. Our Main Campus and original school is located at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, New York, with a sister location at Westchester County Airport in White Plains. Situated on Long Island, a 30-minute drive from new York City, Republic Airport is just minutes away from JFK International and Spadaro Airports. Westchester County Airport is a county-owned airport in Westchester County, New York, three miles northeast of the central business district of White Plains, in the towns of Harrison, North Castle and Rye. Between these two airports, you will have the experience and competence to travel anywhere in the world.

Your flight training here will make you capable of (and comfortable with) flying into complex controlled airspace like JFK, and show you what it is like to be landing at an airport where you are the sole arrival and departure of the day. We have 11,000 foot runways and grass strips for you to jumpstart your flight training. Also, just minutes to the north, we have mountains and many different types of terrain for you to familiarize your self with- an integral factor in your comfort level at the controls of an aircraft is knowledge and recognition of your surroundings. We feel this locale is absolutely perfect for everyone- from first time flyers to long time pros.

At Academy of Aviation, we are dedicated to providing an enriching, hands-on education to our students - at a reasonable price. Academy of Aviation takes pride as professionals, and the commitment to providing you a better learning experience.

Academy of Aviation is located in a modern and spacious facility in the main terminal of Farmingdale's Republic Airport. Our professional staff will always meet you with a smile and attend to all your questions before, during and after your training. We have our own airplane maintenance staff so you never have to wait or reschedule because of airplanes waiting for technical service.

We are more than a place for getting a pilot license. At Academy of Aviation you will not only become a fully qualified pilot, but you will also meet with some of the people who are running the aviation businesses of today and tomorrow. You will have the opportunity to learn first hand what to expect in your future careers and what the aviation is beyond the flying itself. Our past students and instructors are routinely returning to our school to pass on their newly gained experience on people like you who are eager to make the jump and spread their wings.
