What People are Saying

“I was nervous about taking the FAA written test, but at American Pilot Academy, their approach to helping me solve my problems made me feel much more relaxed, and I was able to pass my written test and get back to the fun stuff. FLYING!!!”


“At my previous school I had 25 hours of flight training in my logbook, but all I had ever done was touch and go’s in the pattern. I was in a rut and felt like I was beating my head against a brick wall. When I found APA, their way of training was just what I needed. They gave me the confidence I was lacking by exposing me to more than just landing after landing.”


“Great program! I had a requirement to fly an aircraft x-country and simultaneously get CFI hours. I heard about American Pilot Academy through word of mouth and gave them a call. I had George V. as a CFI and it couldn’t have gone better. His aircraft knowledge was excellent and his instruction was professional – top notch all around. The customer service from Dina on working out the details added great finishing touch.” Facebook Review


“Great school! Finished my instrument rating here and enjoyed the experience. The instructors were very friendly and knowledgeable. Will most likely be returning for future certifications.” Facebook Review
