and points of interest:
- Farmingdale, Long Island, NY: Our flagship school location at Republic Airport in Farmingdale is just minutes away from JFK International and Spadaro Airports. Between these two airports, you will have the experience and competence to travel anywhere in the World. Your flight training here will make you capable of (and comfortable with) flying into complex controlled airspace like JFK, and show you what it is like to be landing at an airport where you are the sole arrival and departure of the day. We have 11,000 foot runways and grass strips for you to jumpstart your flight training.
- Also, just minutes to the north, we have mountains and many different types of terrain for you to familiarize yourself with- an integral factor in your comfort level at the controls of an aircraft is knowledge and recognition of your surroundings. We feel this locale is absolutely perfect for everyone- from first time flyers to long time pros.
- Westchester County, NY: Close to New York City, Westchester County Airport is home to a dynamic General Aviation community as well as a focal point for Charters and Business aviation. Your training here will benefit from the exact same conditions that we enjoy in Farmingdale - experience in dense controlled airspace as well as flying to small and large uncontrolled airports just minutes away.
- Gastonia, NC: As of July 1, 2018 Academy of Aviation has taken wing at Gastonia Municipal Airport. We are an education center as well as an FBO offering the highest level of services and lowest fuel prices. Our education department focuses on flight and mechanic training.
