Recreation, Business, or Flying for the Airlines?
No matter what the reason for your training, Connecticut Flight Academy can help you achieve your aviation goals:
Everyone needs a hobby. Flying is a hobby unlike any other. You get to see the world from a unique bird's eye view. Go places in half the time of driving without the traffic jam headaches. Share scenic flights with family and friends, Sunday breakfast at Block Island (25 min.), Christmas shopping at Martha's Vineyard (1 hour) or a roll of the dice in Atlantic City (1 hour). Flying brings a whole new dimension to your life.
Time is money; being a pilot can get you anywhere fast and safe. Utilizing your pilot certificate to fly for business can be an economical alternative to airline travel:
• Travel on your timetable
• Your ability to take off and land at General Aviation (GA) airports keeping you well clear of big airport traffic delays
• No costly airport parking
• No Transportation Safety Administration security lines
• No waiting for your bags in the baggage claim area or lost luggage
• Aircraft and travel expenses can be tax deductions
If flying as a professional pilot is your goal, to fly for the airlines, business jets, or to become a Certified Flight Instructor, CFA is where you want to start.
With Instructors that have flown the "line", you benefit from their professional flying experience. You will learn the real world of professional flying and get the inside track on choosing the best career path: Airline? Corporate? Charter? Our pilots have been there and done that. They know the system and will help mentor you along the way.
CFA has job placement opportunities for those pilots completing their Commercial Pilot and Certified Flight Instructor ratings. Join our family and start accumulating the hours needed to obtain a professional flying job.
CFA is affiliated with Linear Air - a fast-growing air charter company. Upon reaching Linear Air's minimum flight experience requirements, you will be guaranteed an interview and could start gaining professional flight experience flying the Cessna C208B Grand Caravan as a First Officer and ultimately get a chance to fly the Eclipse 500. This Air Taxi experience will be the best transition in gaining the flight hours needed for the airlines or corporate aviation.
