About us

At Accelerated Aviation Instruction LLC, flight instruction is all we do.You are our only concern. We will dedicate one instructor and one airplane solely to you during your training. We will work with you all day, every day until the certificate or rating you desire, is in your hand. If you have problems during training, you are not unique. We have seen it before and we know how to fix it.


Our instructors are experienced and dedicated to giving you  the very best instruction possible. We are not here to just get you to pass a check ride, but help you to become a proficient and well qualified pilot.  Safety is also a major emphasis in our training. It is important that you make good judgement decisions and adopt a safety ethic in all your flying.
