Professional Pilot Program

Our Professional Pilot program combines our accelerated Private, Instrument, and Commercial courses. In addition to flight training, all of our accelerated courses include instructor-led ground classes, one-on-one study with ground instructors, and one-on-one practice flights in our Redbird full motion flight simulator.

The Instrument Rating and Commercial Pilot courses can be completed Part 61 or Part 141, and our fast-paced and engaging training can have you on your way to a career in aviation in just five months!

We would welcome the opportunity to discuss in detail how we can best help you achieve your goals. Call us to make an appointment to come in and meet with one of our training coordinators, or submit your application to reserve our next available training course today!

What Happens Next?

Once you have obtained your Commercial License, the sky’s the limit! With your Commercial License, you might carry skydivers, tow gliders, work a pipeline patrol, fly for a corporate or charter operator, give scenic tours, monitor environmental situations, do aerial photography, continue to a career in law enforcement, or any other of dozens of flying jobs-even the airlines!

Stay for our Flight-Instructor add-on, and you will be guaranteed an interview for a teaching position at Fl Aviation Center.

Why FL Aviation Center?


At FL Aviation Center, we are just as passionate about safety as we are about aviation. Our aircraft are maintained to the highest standards of excellence. Our instructors have many years of experience in aviation, and include career instructors, airline pilots, law enforcement pilots, and corporate pilots.


FL Aviation Center is located at the Tallahassee International Airport. Our airport is unique in Florida because it provides big-city training opportunities without big-city air traffic congestion. Like the rest of Florida, Tallahassee has excellent flying conditions year-round. However, Tallahassee offers the benefit of Class C airspace services without the overcrowding of central Florida airspace.

Tallahassee also has much to offer when you are not flying, as well. The state capital, and home to two major universities, Tallahassee has a diverse population with activities for everyone. And the beach is always just a short drive away!
