American Winds Flight Academy

Akron, Ohio


At American Winds, we are passionate about Aviation so much so that in May 2007, we became just the Third (non-university) Nationally Accredited Vocational Flight Training School in the U.S. We are SEVIS & TSA Certified to issue I-20’s (M-1 VISA). We pride ourselves on Personalized Flight Training. American Winds offers a Career "Fast Track" Training Program that includes a comprehensive training schedule that never cuts corners on safety and proficiency.

American Winds Flight Academy (AWFA) is one of only two FAA (Certified 141) flight schools in Northeast Ohio - but that’s not what sets us apart from other flight schools. We can provide you with an affordable, flexible and convenient means of fulfilling your personal or professional aviation goals. We offer (for those who qualify) student loan assistance from SLM Financial, the worlds largest student loan provider. At American Winds, our mission is to make your flying experience outstanding, each and every time. We are VA Approved and SEVIS certified to accept International Students.

American Winds Flight Academy also meets all DGCA requirements for Indian students. Make American Winds Flight Academy your school of choice and train at a fraction of the cost of other so called "career schools."
