Flight Training

Sunstate Aviation is an FAA approved Part 141 flight school, located in beautiful central Florida. Just a few miles from Walt Disney World, students can bring the family while conducting flight training. With over 360 beautiful flying days each year, Central Florida is the optimal flight training location.

Sunstate Aviation, established in the Spring of 2002, founder Steve Graham has trained thousands of pilots at their Kissimmee, Florida location. The Sunstate Aviation aeronautics center now has a 16,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art training center, along with 11 late model Cessna Skyhawks. In the Fall of 2021, Brian Hough became owner of Sunstate Aviation, following a lifelong dream of his to own a flight school. Brian brings many years of flight school experience and “out-side-the-box” innovation to Sunstate Aviation.

Did you know that Boeing Aircraft puts out a study every year entitled (Pilot and Technician Outlook Report). In this report, you will see there is a world-wide demand for 763,000 new commercial pilots over the next 20 years (208,000 of those are within North America alone).  What does that number mean to you? If you were to combine every flight school in the United States (Part 61, Part 141, University, and Flying Club), and add up how many new commercial pilot graduates they are able to produce during that same 20-year period, you would not even hit half of that number. The demand for new pilots exceeds the capacity to produce them. This means it is a pilot’s market, and the perfect time for someone to enter. 

Our Flight Training Programs

Accelerated Training

SunState Aviation’s accelerated flight training program is hands-down the most cost and time efficient way for you to train for a pilot license or an instrument rating.

Private Pilot Training

Your private pilot license will be one of the most exciting courses you ever complete. I use an example of learning to drive a vehicle and how exciting that was. However, you were a passenger in the vehicle for years prior to learning to drive. Most of us were never in an airplane prior to learning to fly. Now, sit back, you are cleared for take-off!

Instrument Training

You planned a great trip to an exciting destination—but travel day turned up overcast and drizzly. You canceled because of weather, again—if only you had your Instrument rating.

Commercial Training

Even if it’s not your career goal to be a professional pilot, the skills you will learn in earning your Commercial Pilot Certificate will make you a more skilled and capable pilot. This training course will teach you the substantial skills and knowledge you need to be certified by the FAA to carry passengers and cargo for hire.

Multi Engine Training

Our multi-engine add-on course is designed to equip FAA certificated pilots with all of the skills essential for safe operation of multi-engine aircraft. The course features King Schools’ Integrated Flight Training system utilizing the King Interactive multimedia Computer-Based Instruction system. Upon successful completion you will have a multi-engine rating with instrument privileges.

Flight Instructor Training

Teaching someone else to fly can be one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet!
