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.)
Professional Pilot Program
This program is designed for students with zero flying experience. You will obtain your FAA Private, Instrument, Commercial Multi-engine, CFI, and CFII licenses. Thanks to our phenomenal almost-year-round sunny weather in Central Florida the total length of our program is approximately 13 months.
Upon graduation, you will be given an opportunity to interview with us and if successful you will be able to be a flight instructor for the next generation of students.
All airlines in the U.S. require a minimum of 1,500 hours of flight time and by being a flight instructor you will be able to obtain those hours.
Combining the airline experience you will receive from day one, plus all the flight time you need to get you to the next level, makes USATS the best place for any pilot to learn how to fly and achieve their dreams.
