News | 0 Comments | | Return

Sebring Flight Academy, formerly known as Leading Edge Fight Training School, is ready and open for business with a brand new TAA IFR glass panel equipped Bristell Aircraft along with a Cessna 172. The school, located at the Sebring Airport also offers FAA approved simulator training in the Redbird FMX, a superior-quality, full motion, Advanced Aviation Training Device.

 

General Manager Brant Howell had this to say about the Sebring location: “The Sebring Airport has so much to offer and now a professional flight school is here. Utilizing modern aircraft, and with housing and financing available we offer an accelerated program to become a professional pilot that is simply not available at conventional flight schools. It’s a great time to be involved in aviation, the airlines are hiring, and career opportunities have never been better.”

 

Continued Brant, “…our students have the ability to obtain their LSA instructor certificates in as little as four months and then be paid while they build time and experience. We’re excited to be one of the few flight training operations anywhere with all of these resources and opportunities.”
