FAA Pilot Training

Our FAA (American) license training courses take individuals from the private pilot all the way through the airline transport pilot certificates. These licenses are acceptable in the Americas and other countries around the world.

EASA Pilot Training

Our EASA (European) training programs take individuals from a level of zero flying experience to the issuance of a Frozen EASA ATPL certificate upon graduation. This EASA license is acceptable throughout Europe and other countries across the globe.

My training at Airborne has been a great experience. I feel fully prepared to get a job at an airline after having completed my training. That is thanks to the intense course of study and the classes received by the well prepared instructors that work at the academy.

Luis Bejarano Rodriguez (Panama) - FAA Airline Pilot Program Graduate - 2015


I graduated my commercial program in 2013 and did my entire course in the eight months. I had such a great experience, I have re-enrolled with Airborne to continue my training in March 2015 to complete my flight instructor ratings through ATP. I'd recommend Airborne to anyone looking to become a professional pilot.
