Your Best Choice for Accelerated Flight Training

Accelerated flight training is hands-down the most cost and time efficient way to train for a pilot license or rating.

Our flight training programs are designed to take the student away from his or her daily routine and place them in an environment where they are fully immersed in the subject-matter – free from distractions – keeping the student’s learning curve peaked for the duration of his or her accelerated flight training program.

The student benefits from this style of training in terms of both cost savings, and – even more importantly – maximum retention of knowledge and practical skills. As an example, our average flight training time to completion of an accelerated Private Pilot training course (starting from zero) is about 47 hours over a 3 or 4 week period (students with prior training experience may be able to finish in less time). Compared to the national average of more than 80 hours for completion of a non-accelerated training course.

SunState Aviation students finish their training in a fraction of the time of students in traditional training programs.

“I have to say that all of my expectations were more than exceeded at SunState Aviation!”

Central Florida – Best Location For Accelerated Flight Training

The Principle of Exercise states that learning is positively enhanced by regular practice while disuse negatively enhances the learning process, thereby making learning more difficult. With overall limited enrollment in SunState Aviation’s accelerated flight training our students are able to fly up to 6 days a week, 2 to 3 times per day. The increased frequency means increased practice and exercise of aviation and flying principles and ultimately means you progress through flight training faster and retain knowledge quicker.
