Student Achievements

Celebrating Our 2019 Class

2019 was a banner year for Academy of Aviation. We watched as our Gastonia, NC location grew from a small startup flight school location to a fully realized entity with housing and career students. We are proud of the continued success of our White Plains location, serving the needs of flight students and private pilots from Westchester and the five boroughs of NYC. And we were extremely proud of the continued growth and success of the many students who make up our flagship Farmingdale location on Long Island, NY.

We are fortunate that many of our students like to be recognized on social media, so we'd like to acknowledge some of them here. Scroll through, and take a moment to realize how much work, pride and satisfaction went into every one of the following milestone moments:
