Academy of Aviation?

I’ve been thinking about attending the Academy of Aviation in Farmingdale. Does anyone have any past experiences with this program?

Kristoff,

Maybe someone will chime in but I’ve never heard of AOA. That said virtually every flight school in the US have converted themselves to “academies” offering Professional Pilot Programs. Thing is ATP pioneered the program over 30 years ago and has placed over 600 pilots with the airlines in the last 12mos alone. If it were my $80k I would go for a flight school that’s well established with a proven track record.

Thanks Adam, I’m going on a visit Tuesday are there any red flags I should be looking for?

Kristoff,

I do have to ask, any reason you’re not considering ATP?
