Your Best Choice for Accelerated Flight Training
Accelerated flight training is hands-down the most cost and time efficient way for you to train for a pilot license or an instrument rating.
Our accelerated flight training programs are designed to take you away from your daily routine and place you in an environment where you can be hyper-focused. You will benefit from this style of training in terms of both cost savings, and – even more importantly – maximum retention of knowledge and skills.
An accelerated Private Pilot training course can be completed with 10 to 20 fewer hours on average compared to a traditional flight training course, and can be done in as little as 3 weeks!
