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.

Airborne Career Academy

Founded in 1994, Airborne has grown to become one of the largest independent providers of flight training in the United States. We are one of the few flight training organizations in the industry that is able to offer both American FAA and European EASA license training at our training centers in  Florida.

Airborne had 347 FAA flight tests with a 91% first-time pass rate in 2014. Congratulations to all of those who passed and a special thank you to our great staff and instructors for making it all possible!
