Are there career options available?
You bet! Experts are saying that the world is currently in the start of a new hiring spree with airlines. Of course there are additional career opportunities in business aviation, medical and fire services, government service, agriculture and other fields.
Is it affordable?
YES! It's actually less expensive than most people would think. Unlike most educational experiences, you can set the pace according to your finances. There are also scholarships and financial assistance available if you need.
Should I buy an airplane?
You can if you like, but you don't have to. We suggest pilots complete their training to see what features they enjoy and then purchase. Aircraft rentals are available at almost any airport in the nation. No need to worry – we have a fleet of airplanes ready for you to utilize.
Is it safe?
Absolutely. Most pilots will tell you flying is safer than driving a vehicle. Our planes undergo stringent inspections by the Federal Aviation Association. Our instructors are required to participate in continuous training and safety courses. Safety is something that pilots have a passion for.
How long does training last?
That's a hard question to answer. Some finish their initial training in 30 days, some in 18 months. It all happens at your pace. Ultimately, all students will walk away with the motto of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association - “A good pilot is always learning.”
