The Vermont Flight Academy was created to promote general aviation through a program of high-quality flight training provided at a competitive cost. Organzied as a non-profit 501(3)c corporation, we plan to focus on flight training as an educational process in every sense of the word. This can only be accomplished through a dedicated program that emphasizes all areas of flight training, beginning with fundamental aviation knowledge and applying that knowledge to the teaching of flying skills.
VFA was recently approved as an FAR part 141 Pilot School. With this approval we are able to offer a standardized flight training program with educational and economic benefits to our students. Additionally, we plan to develop a 4-year Professional Pilot degree program in affiliation with Vermont Technical College. Beyond these formalized offerings, VFA also offers FAR part 61 flight training. Our full curriculum includes training in tailwheel aircraft and seaplanes. We will also offer training in advanced simulators and gliders in the coming year.
Whether you plan to become a professional pilot or simply want to fly for fun as a Private Pilot or Sport Pilot, we will provide the aircraft and training to accomplish your goals. If you already fly, contact us today about adding a tailwheel signoff or getting your seaplane rating this summer, both single- and multi-engine!
