SunState Aviation was founded in the spring of 2002 when President and co-founder Steve Graham saw a need for a quality flight training center which would both serve the needs of local student pilots as well as being a prime location for an Accelerated Flight Training Center. Starting with one airplane and 500 square feet of rented space, now ten years later with a 16,000 square foot state of the art training center and a large fleet of quality training aircraft, SunState Aviation has become America’s premier Accelerated Flight Training Center.

Building on our commitment to offering top quality flight training and personalized service, SunState Aviation has now expanded it’s flight training curriculum to include all FAA advanced ratings from Private Pilot through ATP, designed to take pilots on a logical progression of pilot training and experience to meet the pilot’s own personal needs.
