Career Pilot Academy
“Ab initio” is a term we’ll all be hearing more about, as the impending pilot shortage progresses. Literally, “ab initio” is Latin for “from the beginning.” With our Career Pilot Academy, we can help your aviation career dream take flight. From your first takeoff in an aircraft, you could become a Type Rated Commercial Pilot in approximately 12-18 months!
Our Career Pilot Academy is available for self-sponsored students who want to kick start a great career; or to airlines who may select individuals who are ideally qualified team members and want to develop a strong team of pilots. International students are always welcome!
Our Career Pilot Academy offers the following courses:
Your adventure in aviation begins with a discovery flight. You will take the controls & get a feel for handling a Cessna 172 aircraft. Duration is 30 minutes and includes pre-flight instruction and post-flight briefing. Feel free to bring a friend along for the ride!
