Our program for our flight students from the Middle-East Region includes flight- and ground training times required by Federal Aviation Administration minimum requirements to complete each course module. We have added all known fees, such as TSA, theoretical and practical exam fees and other expenses to present a realistic course outline.

You and, if you’d like, your parents will have full access to your electronic flight school account. You will be able to see all service charges, each flight or Ground lesson and any payments made.

We have included all and any known fees, unless we have listed them as excluded. However, the fees listed are based upon FAA or EASA minimum program requirements and additional flight- and/or ground training might be necessary to obtain the desired certificate or rating. Additional training fees are charged per our current price list.

Our Career Programs are designed to be completed within 12 months. However, aircraft availability due to scheduled or unscheduled aircraft maintenance, number of students enrolled, flight instructor availability and other circumstances, such as weather conditions have to be taken into consideration. The form I-20/M1 Visa will give foreign students a maximum of one year to complete the entire program.

It depends on aircraft and flight instructor availablity. Schedule and unscheduled aircraft maintenance as well as weather conditions may delay some of the scheduled flights.

We do not accept more students as we can train. Thus, our flight instructor to student ratio is about 1:4 to 1:5, one flight instructor per 4-5 flight students.

We do require a registration, document and shipping processing fee. A deposit must be made upon arrival and before the first lesson will be commenced followed by monthly installment payments.

We help to find suitable accommodation for all of our customers. Mostly our customers share apartments or rooms with other flight students.

Immigration regulations require M1 students to maintain full-time student status at all times. This requires a minimum attendance of 22 clock-hours per week. You will find more information at

Successful Pilots

Daniel Ritter (Germany)

Everything startet with Florida Flyers Flight Academy, Inc.  in 2010. At this time it was a pretty small fight school, with just a couple of planes, because Rainer had just started his business there. I had a very good time during my training and remember till today the tiny little head office of the school located on the US1. We refueled the planes ourself and got the credit card of the owner for doing it.
