State of the art Utah Campus

FLT Academy’s main campus is located at the Skypark airport, 10 minutes north of Salt Lake City.  Skypark airport doesn’t have tower control, which means no long waits on the ground prior to starting your flights.  

You’ll have the chance to practice with Salt Lake bravo airspace and Air Traffic Control on nearly every flight, providing a rich and constant training experience. We also have two motion-capable flight simulators for on-the-ground training alongside your lessons in the air.

HIGH-TECH FLEET OF AIRCRAFT

What will you be flying when you enroll with FLT Academy? Each aircraft in our fleet is equipped with glass-panel avionics like the Garmin G1000 and Dynon SkyView.  Additionally, multiple AATD flight simulators are available so you can train even when weather isn’t permitting.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Learning to fly is a dream for many, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have questions. Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions, and you can see our whole list on our FAQ page.

Yes. Not only does our pilot training put safety at the forefront, but so do our practices both in the air and on the ground— at every moment. Before our students test for their pilot’s rating, we make sure they are experts in safety, readily equipped with the knowledge and experience necessary to handle any situation. When you’re not in one of our aircraft, you can be assured that all of its maintenance needs are being met.

Our planes are inspected every 50 and 100 hours by our in-house seasoned mechanics. Each plane is seen by our maintenance staff twice a month and sometimes more. There is no expense spared in the maintenance and safety of our planes. It makes all the difference.

Training duration depends on the program, certificate, and/or ratings you are pursuing as well as whether you are enrolled in the accelerated or less-accelerated program. Students who are available for training more frequently are able to complete their training in less time.  Please visit our programs page for insight into each estimated completion timeline.

Again, this depends on the program, but certificated pilots must spend a good amount of time in the sky, as well as on the ground with a pencil in hand. In-air experience is critical and teaches valuable lessons that can’t be accomplished in a simulator alone. Our students will spend many hours in one of our aircraft with a professional instructor during their flight training.

An intro flight is the perfect kickstart to following your dreams of a career in aviation. Individuals will take to the skies in one of our aircraft with a trained flight instructor, gaining a birds-eye view of the ground while receiving valuable insights. The intro flight is a hands-on experience, allowing individuals to take the controls into their own hands and get a feel for the flight. 

If you would like to schedule an introductory flight, you can do so in our online store.
