Take Advantage of the ATP Shortage
Get ready for your new aviation career with pilot training at our Flex Air Academy. Over the next 20 years, the demand for commercial and Airline Transport Pilots (ATP) will exceed the supply. According to Forbes, the US will need an estimated 95,000 experienced airline pilots while the supply of pilots available will only be 64,000.
The reasons for the projected pilot shortages are numerous and include both regulatory and operating factors. ATP pilots must have a total of 1,500 flight hours. The FAA requires that airline transport pilots retire at the age of 65, which will result in thousands of open pilot positions that need to be filled. Airlines are also experiencing an unprecedented boom. They have increased capacity and lowered operating expenses, which means they are flying more routes within the United States and across the globe.
Earning Your Wings at Our Flex Air Academy
You can earn your wings at our Flex Air Academy, even if you have zero flight time and no experience in the flight deck. Our comprehensive flight training program is designed to take you from student pilot to commercial pilot in eight to twelve months, and you could have your private pilot’s license in as little as 21 days, depending on your flying schedule.
Students in our flight training academy enjoy low student-instructor ratios, which results in peronalized attention, higher pass rates for written and practical tests and faster completion of pilot’s licenses and certifications while maintaining strict safety standards.
Flex Air Academy Timeline
No Flair Aircraft Fleet
All of our practical flight training is accomplished inside our fleet of “No Flair Airfare”, which means you will not overpay for your flight instruction due to excessive aircraft bells and whistles. Our aircraft are designed and upgraded to be safety and budget oriented so students are not billed for things they do not need. Although things like Auto-pilot and full glass panel displays are fun, they could add up to $15,000 to your training costs.
