About us

Academy of Aviation is a unique place in many ways. We strive to be the best in all aspects of our operations and we proud ourselves on achieving it.

Our flight school started 10 years ago and is growing fast. We are now an approved FAA Part 141 establishment and a certified Cessna Pilot Center. We operate over 15 airplanes and are situated at one of the most amazing areas for flight training lessons. A few years ago Academy of Aviation moved to a modern and spacious facility in the main terminal of Farmingdale's Republic Airport. Our professional staff will always meet you with a smile and attend to all your questions before, during and after your training.  We have our own airplane maintenance staff so you never have to wait or reschedule because of airplanes waiting for technical service.

We are fortunate to operate our flight school from what is the best field for flight lessons  and training not only in the NYC area but easily in the World - Republic, KFRG

We are more than a place for getting a pilot license. At Academy of Aviation you will not only become a fully qualified pilot, but you will also meet with some of the people who are running the aviation businesses of today and tomorrow. You will have the opportunity to learn first hand what to expect in your future careers and what the aviation is beyond the flying itself. Our past students and instructors are routinely returning to our school to pass on their newly gained experience on people like you who are eager to make the jump and spread their wings. 

Please browse the menus for more details on the various aspects of our flight school and operations. Write to us, give us a call, or visit.
