Welcome to Illinois Aviation Academy
Illinois Aviation Academy, Inc. (IAA) was created in 1993 with nothing more than a passion for aviation. Preflight briefings were in lawn chairs near the trunk of a car, organized classes were held at Community Colleges, and flight training was performed in aircraft leased from other flight operators. Our slogan was and continues to be "IAA provides personalized training at an affordable price". The only asset of the company was a passion for aviation and a significant number of students that wanted to learn how to fly. IAA is the only vocationally certified flight school in the entire state of Illinois.
From those humble beginnings, IAA has grown significantly. IAA now provides complete corporate aviation services, financial aid services, aircraft maintenance, simulators, aircraft storage, aircraft sales and a four year degree. Soon IAA will be providing more internet based training, and entry into the charter business, and much more. This success is due to the hard work of dedicated instructors and employees with a preservation of ideals that this company was founded upon.

Earn Your Instrument Rating With IAA!
This course prepares a pilot for flight conditions under IFR (Instrument Flight rules) and requires additional instruction structured towards intensive training in flight solely by reference to instruments. This rating entitles the pilot to fly when visibility and ceilings are low and weather conditions are marginal. It is not a pre-requisite for a commercial license but having IFR rating expands your possibilities. You must however have a Private Pilot's license prior to attempting Instrument rating.
