We won’t just teach you to fly - we’ll make you a pilot.

European Flight Training (EFT) is the established leader in pilot training under the European EASA licencing system with base locations in the United States (Florida) and Europe (UK). We offer the most competitive packages, and the best value for money out of all EASA flight schools in Florida, and are the only EASA flight school with EASA (European) Flight Instructors, and not Americans teaching our courses - meaning we provide the highest quality EASA training in the industry.

We have over 10 EASA Flight instructors from Europe on full time staff making us the only true EASA school outside Europe.

EFT was one of the first schools in the USA to offer UK CAA Approved flight training courses back in 2000. Now in our 13th year of business, we have endured the significant challenges and changes due to JAA and now EASA Licencing & Regulations and have emerged as one of the leaders in an industry that has seen the demise of many. We have earned our excellent reputation by delivering the highest quality training at a truly competitive price.

Affordable Quality
Today, Europe has become even more expensive than ever; the cost of learning to fly is becoming, if it is not already, too expensive for the majority. Having the option of training in the USA for your European Licence gives hope and more choice to being able to achieve your dream which otherwise might be out of reach.

We also offer the opportunity to everyone who meets our high standards, to enter our ‘Internship Programme’. The Programme begins by gaining additional qualifications including an Instructor Rating followed by up to 18 months paid work as a flying instructor. Gaining this invaluable work experience and an extra 1000 hours in your logbook gives you a tremendous advantage over pilots with only 250 hours!

Uniquely Qualified
EFT is the ONLY EASA Approved in the USA that can offer this through its partnership with Aviator College. The F1 Visa option, required for the work experience, is only available to accredited schools and it is just another good reason why you should train with us.

When looking through our website, please take the time to look at the testimonials and success stories. We have over 1,500 followers on our on Facebook, many of them ex-students, and we still enrol a high number of our new customers through word of mouth as without doubt, the best advertising is from the recommendation of others.

Picture To the left are two of our former customers. They met back in 2004 when Matt was a student and Kevin was an instructor at EFT. A few years later they met again, when Matt joined Easyjet, and now Kevin was his Captain!

Choose Wisely!
You will see plenty of references to the flying dream in advertisements and marketing materials of most flight training organisations, but in reality, chasing the dream is expensive, so it is vital you make the right choice and enrol at a good school. We encourage you to do your homework, consider all your options, become knowledgeable about the industry and spend your money wisely, we promise you, if you do that you will achieve your dream and become the best trained pilot you can be, on time and on budget.

We also encourage you to minimise your risk and NEVER agree to pay significant amounts of money to any training company upfront. It is a regrettable fact that the flight training industry has been littered with the unscrupulous and many students have seen their dream go up in smoke as they lost all their money when their training provider went bankrupt.

We are here to help
We have dedicated and experienced staff available to answer your questions, so please don’t hesitate to email or telephone us, we will gladly talk to you and give you more information and advice.

We would also encourage you to visit, and whilst this might be a little out of your way, it nevertheless would cost only a fraction of your total training costs and perhaps a very worthwhile investment – we feel sure you will be convinced!

Should you choose to visit, we will pick you up and pay for your Hotel accommodation for a couple of nights. We also have incentives for making a contribution to your air ticket, so please talk to our staff for details.

We look forward to hearing from you.
