Tomorrow's Pilots, Today

You are more than just a student, we are more than just a flight school.

Certificated under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as an approved Part 61 and Part 141 flight school, American Winds is qualified to train students who have an interest in receiving a private pilot license, obtaining an advanced rating, or training the career-minded individual who wants to make aviation his or her career goal.


“American Winds – a diverse, student-centered school where we pride ourselves on building the lives of our students through small class sizes, expert faculty, research, and cultural events. Our goal at American Winds is to ensure that all students get the best education possible while having a truly remarkable flight school experience.”
