We have a relentless focus on safety and customer service. We have a dedicated team of maintenance professionals and 12,000 square feet of hangars.

Yes. Because we are managed by former airline executives we are able to develop industry leading programs that other flight schools cannot match.
In fact, we are also an airline as we hold an FAA Air Carrier Certificate for on-demand charter operations.
International Aero Academy does on site have dormitory accommodations. However, if you would prefer other accommodations or our dormitory is already full, there are hotels in our area which will give our students a special rate.
We have new state-of-the-art Tecnam P2008 aircraft. In addition, the International Aero Academy fleet is also made up of several different types of aircraft including: Cessna 152, Cessna 172, Cessna 172SP, Cessna 172 G1000, Piper Seneca (multi) aircraft and Elite iGate G502 simulator.
The Cessna 172 is a 4 seat trainer with 180 hp. It is very stable and a good fit for a larger pilot. It is very comfortable. A large portion of our private pilot students train in a 172.
All of International Aero Academy aircraft are insured. However, if a student damages one of our aircraft and it is their fault, they will be responsible for paying the insurance deductible. We do recommend students purchase rental insurance, which is available at reasonable rates. Please contact us if you would like additional information about rental insurance.
If something happens in your personal schedule that will prevent you from attending flight training during the time slot pre-arranged for you, we will work with you to reschedule your training. Please call us at 863-401-3592 if you need to reschedule.
A $1,000 deposit is required to reserve a training time slot.
