Why Sunstate

Intro Section on Why SunState Aviation is the Right Choice

SunState Aviation was founded in the Spring of 2002 when owner & founder, Steve Graham, saw a need for a quality flight training center which would both serve the needs of local student pilots & abroad. SunState started with only one airplane and about 500 sq. ft. of rented space; now, fast forward to almost twenty years later & SunState has grown into a 16,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art training center with a fleet of 10 training aircraft.

SunState Aviation is also a Cessna Pilot Center!

No matter where you learn to fly, your classroom will be the Cessna Skyhawk. It’s a joy to fly – in fact, it’s the most popular airplane ever made. But make no mistake – this Cessna definitely doesn’t have training wheels. The Skyhawk comfortably carries two adults and their luggage up to 14,000 feet at a pulse-quickening 140 mph (225 kph).
