Why Choose United States for Flight Training?

Communication is an essential the most important part of flying. A pilot that can communicate with the Air Traffic Control Tower and other pilots will encounter far fewer problems while flying. One of your top goals when learning how to fly should be to speak as much as you can! The best way to become proficient in the English language is to speak it every day. Take advantage of every opportunity you have to talk to others by speaking to them in English. The more you practice, the more comfortable you will be in the air and you will increase the safety of flying. Flying in the USA gives you a keen advantage over flying anywhere else in the world.

Flying in the USA is an absolute delight. The United States has an abundance of airports throughout the nation. Airports can vary in type and size and at these various airports, there are also an immense amount of approaches and approach systems (precision and non-precision) that student pilots can take advantage of in order to further their flight experience and skills. In Florida alone there are 93 ILS stations whereas California has a significant number of international airports with 9 large and medium hub airports and more than a dozen of smaller ones, it’s one of the best-covered USA states in terms of air traffic.

The quality of aircraft that our flight school holds has a major impact on one’s flight training. Our one-site maintenance team has the ability to resolve issues before they occur keeping our fleet operational and safe.

The diversity of the environment, aircraft, runways, and Airports right here in the United States will hone your skills.

Weather is a major factor in the ability of pilots to safely and successfully conduct flights. It is the same for pilots seeking training. We all know that canceling training flights slows down training which can result in increased training costs, and if nothing else, can just be really frustrating for a pilot working to get a rating or certificate completed.

Florida is known as the Sunshine State so you may assume there is no bad time to start your career in pilot training. And that’s largely true as long as you’re ready for the heat and humidity in the summertime and sometimes chilly temperatures in the winter. When putting the weather into context, it’s important to remember how big Florida is. So the weather across the state, especially north to south, can vary quite a bit — especially during the winter.
