Academy of Aviation Flight School - Sport Pilot License and Recreational License

The Sport or Recreational Licenses allow you to act as a pilot in command (PIC) on a small single engine airplane.

This license is ideal if you own a small airplane or if you participate in one of the many Clubs that own Ultralight and Light Sport aircraft. Safety and fun all in one.


Some reasons for choosing the Sport or Recreational course:
Own or rent an Ultralight or Light Sport Airplane.
Entry step for advancing to Private Pilot.
Exploring interesting activities and giving flying a try.

What AOA offers to your advantage:
Demanding yet relaxed airspace with high tolerance for students and new pilots.
Both glass cockpit and traditionally equipped airplanes.
Situated on beautiful Long Island with picturesque shorelines and bays.
Less than an hour drive from New York City (NYC) and easily accessible on the LlRR.
Prices that no other flight school can beat.

FAA (Minimum) Requirements:
17 years of age.
20 hours for Sport; 30 hours for Recreational.
