Direct Connect Flight Academy

Colorado Springs, Colorado


We provide an enriched learning environment that is designed to give students an advantage at achieving a pilot career. Our founders created DCFA with the idea that getting to the airline of your choice as quickly as possible and with airline-like training is paramount. The idea of a “pilot factory” is not conducive to good learning. Rather, superior training with career flight instructors will provide our students with the necessary skills to operate transport category airliners safely and efficiently. We’re extremely proud of our students and staff who are always eager to learn, create and grow together.

I started my aviation career through Direct Connect Flight Academy. The education was top notch, and I couldn´t have made a better choice in schools. They trained me to be an airline pilot, and right out of flight school I got hired to fly twin turbine aircraft for a passenger and cargo company. I don´t believe I could have been better prepared by any other school. The people at Direct Connect truly care about each student, they went above and beyond in every aspect of training and making connections for career opportunities.

As I jumped into my aviation career, I was nervous and didn’t know which route I wanted to take to get there, but Direct Connect Flight Academy was absolutely the right choice! Throughout the program I was able to not only learn how to fly but also have the opportunity to be trained like a professional airline pilot. At Direct Connect Flight Academy the training program they have in place is an airline based program which teaches you everything you will need to know to make that transition to an airline a breeze! 10/10 recommendation from myself, for all of you who aspire to be a great airline pilot and to get a one of a kind training experience, would highly recommend Direct Connect Flight Academy for you too.
