In the United States, the most popular and economical method of career development and time building for future airline pilots is to work as a certified flight instructor. Our Instructor Academy will prepare our students to receive a wide range of FAA instructor certificates for both airplanes and helicopters:
All instructors in our academy obtained both the CFI and CFII ratings. Our chef pilot and senior instructors are certified with MEI ratings. We train at least two instructors each month to prepare them for the task at becoming a flight instructor with SkyEagle Aviation.
Our primary goal is to provide every student with the best possible flying and training experience. After an initial consultation, we will design your custom training program to meet your unique goals, schedule and lifestyle.
Whether you're looking for a fast-paced two-week "finish-up" program or a complete professional program, AAAS is committed to helping you meet your flight goals. We offer all the benefits of a large flight school or university without the "one size fits all" programs, rigid timeframes, rules and slow processes. Students can learn at their own pace.
Because of our commitment to providing excellent customer service, modern equipment, and the highest quality training programs available, our students enjoy a high examination success rate!
