The Academy of Aviation (AOA) is a FAA Flight 141 approved flight training school. AOA has years of expertise in training hundreds of young students domestically and around the world. They will prepare dedicated flight aviation students to obtain their Private Pilot license (PPL), all the way to a Commercial Pilot with a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) certification, and ATP. The CFI certification will allow you to train other stu- dents and be employed by the academy full time.

Every two students will be provided a Cessna 172R or 172SP. Each student will fly for 1 hour. The first leg is flying from Farmingdale New York to Groton Connecticut. The second student will take the controls and fly the return flight to Republic Airport.

The training courses include: Half Hour Pre-flight Inspection and One hour of FAA ground school training.

Since this is our first time to offer such flight training event, HD video of flight training will be provided, and a helicopter will be used to record your flying. All students who participated will get a T-Shirt as well.
