About Our Atlanta Location

Academy of Aviation's Atlanta expansion is quickly becoming one of our most popular locations for our flight students. We started our school in the urban craziness of New York City, and are positively thrilled that we can offer the same quality of high performance and education-driven flight training in the subdued outskirts of the breathtaking outer-Atlanta countryside.

About Our Team

Our Atlanta staff is spearheaded by the merit and "coolness" of James “Tyler” Carroll, the Assistant Chief for our Peachtree City, GA "KFFC" location. He started flight training in 2018 in Utah and joined the Academy of Aviation family in 2020 as we grew into the Atlanta area. Tyler is always at the ready to guide, strengthen and cheer you on in your pilot education.

If you have any questions, concerns or just want to talk about flight training, Miranda Shockley is the Operational Support Manager and all-around office guru at our Atlanta "KFFC" campus. Call or Text her at (516) 613-4556 to schedule an appointment for a campus tour or just to have an opening conversation about training at AOA.

The introduction into Atlanta continues as we are proud to introduce Casey Roethler, a CFI/CFII/MEI and a Check Airman at our Atlanta campus. Have fun and get educated as a Private Pilot or Commercial Pilot under Casey's guidance.
