Flight School Location: Where are we and what are we about?

Falcon Field Campus Information

Academy of Aviation's Atlanta expansion is quickly becoming one of our most popular locations for our flight students. We started our school in the urban craziness of New York City, and are positively thrilled that we can offer the same quality of high performance and education-driven flight training in the subdued outskirts of the breathtaking outer-Atlanta countryside.

With its 5,768′ runway that can accommodate aircraft up to 60,000 pounds, Atlanta Regional Airport – Falcon Field has become one of the premier airports of the southeast.
