We Don’t Just Train Pilots, We Create Aviators
Aviation is not just about flying, it's is about leadership, safety, and embracing a sense of adventure. Aviation is hours of study, maintaining your health at a high level, and joining a community of professionals that author the pages of history. It isn’t easy, and the price can be high, but if you want a rewarding career that you will never regret then it's well worth the journey. Be part of the next generation of aviation professionals and begin your career as a pilot with USATS.
How do you judge aviation training quality? Expensive aircraft and nice training facilities? Or, do you look at success, safety, and experience?
USATS has over 30 years of history in training thousands of pilots (and 2 astronauts, Bolden and Knudsen!) from over 120 different countries. Our graduates fly in every sector of the aviation industry throughout the world, so no matter which of the hundreds of career paths you choose you'll find that at least one of our graduates has blazed a path for you.
World-Class Training Programs
Challenge our training professionals to create a training path that meets your personal career goals!
Our training professionals will evaluate your needs from every possible angle, including considerations like aircraft type, special flight requirements, host country regulatory requirements, instrument training, and certifications all the way to an instructor rating. (We often hire our graduates as instructors to help build quality hours and experience.)
Instrument Rating (IR) Course
At USATS we have the perfect set up for you to earn your instrument rating. Space Coast Regional Airport (KTIX), our home-based airport, has a few precision and non-precision approaches. Within a short flight, we have several other airports such as Orlando Executive (KORL), Melbourne (KMLB), and Orlando-Sanford International (KSFB), which give you plenty of options to practice approaches.
You will have the opportunity to be flying in some of the busiest airspace and airports in the U.S. that will prepare you to be able to fly in any airspace. Our proximity to all these airports, our almost year-round perfect weather conditions, and our new glass cockpit airplanes makes us the prime flight school for you to learn and obtain your instrument rating.
