Academy of Aviation offers a convenient housing which is especially suitable for out of area students and those in the Career Pilot Program. Accommodations provided by AOA start at $250 per week for private room with wireless internet.
Living expenses are very affordable. Although close to New York City, the cost of living in Farmingdale has no premiums compared to other places in the country. With a large number of local stores and ethnic food groceries and restaurants you can almost certainly find your favorite type of food.
Many people underestimate the importance of diversity and leisure time on the successful outcome of their training. For the average career pilot student the course will take many lessons within many months. If you are constantly starved from the things you are used to and live in isolated place with no healthy distractions the chances are that your brain will get tired faster than you will be able to complete your course. This will have negative impact on your academic performance and your personal experience with your lessons and training. While Academy of Aviation can not get any credit for the multitude of choices available to our student, we are happy to notice that student who come from other more isolated centers in the country generally report a higher level of satisfaction and higher motivation for doing the day to day work necessary for their certification.
If you have any questions regarding housing and the cost of living, please call us or send us an email.
