WHERE WE ARE LOCATED
The Ann Arbor Aviation Center is located at the Ann Arbor Airport (ARB) in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The airport is a small tower-controlled (CLASS D) airport, with both an asphalt and grass runway. The airport is located on the south side of Ann Arbor at the corner of State Street and Elsworth, only about 1 mile south of the I-94 State St. exit.
WHO MAY FLY
You may begin taking lessons at any time, at any age, but must hold a student pilot certificate to solo (fly by yourself) in the airplane. According to the FAA’s federal aviation regulations (FARs), to be eligable for a student pilot certificate you must be at least 16 years old, be able to read, write, and speak english, and maintain a third-class medical certificate. In order to obtain your private pilot’s license, you must be 17 years old, complete the flight training and time requirements, pass a knowledge test, and finally complete the practical test which includes both an oral examination, and an actual flight test where you demonstrate your flight manuevers and pilot skills.
The Ann Arbor Aviation Center is one of the area’s most comprehensive flying schools. We provide both the rental aircraft, as well as high quality instructors. We are committed to producing safe, skilled pilots whether their intentions are for career or leisure. As a testimony to our program, many of our former students are today flying for large commercial airlines.
If you are dreaming about flying, or wish to further your skills and flight ratings, then allow us to provide you with a quality flight training experience. We offer both ground school and flight training for all ratings from a private pilot rating to your airline transport pilot (ATP) rating.
