Academy of Aviation Charlotte/Gastonia Campus Information & Highlights

The Gastonia campus was a tremendous step for the Academy. Not only was it the furthest we had ever expanded in a single step, it brought along the opportunity to run an airport for the city, get into commercial fueling operations, and serve as an excellent base of operations for our aircraft sales and management activities to support our student body.

With tons of space and even more potential, the Gastonia campus is a favorite amongst our students.
