Academy of Aviation's main office is located at Farmingdale on Long Island, NY, USA. We are approximately 30 miles East of New York City.

Our Main Campus and original school is located at Republic Airport (KFRG) in Farmingdale, New York. Situated on Long Island, a 30-minute drive from new York City, Republic Airport is just minutes away from JFK International and Spadaro Airports. Between these two airports, 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.

Take off and land on 11,000 foot runways and grass strips - a great way 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.
