Committed to Excellence

A Thrilling Career with a World of Possibilities

According to the Department of Transportation, the number of airline passengers is steadily climbing by 5% each year.  Couple this with the fact that pilot retirements at the airlines are steadily increasing and regional airline demand for qualified pilots continues to expand. This has created an increasing need for pilots nationally. At L3 Airline Academy, we successfully equip students to take advantage of this industry demand through our Airline Pilot Track. Upon completion of the Airline Pilot Track, your professional pilot opportunities are expansive, including: cargo, corporate, sightseeing, airline, military, and more. Whatever your passion, L3 Airline Academy will uphold the industry’s highest standards and best practices to help you excel in your field.

As a leading flight academy, established by the airlines, for the airlines, L3 provides airline-oriented flight training to ensure students are prepared for all aspects of commercial flight. Upon completion of the Airline Pilot Track, students with the goal of becoming instructors are guaranteed an interview to be potentially employed as an L3 Airline Academy Certified Flight Instructor. Strong partnerships with multiple colleges and universities, as well as established Pathway Partnerships with 13 Regional Airlines, means L3 graduates are fully prepared to become successful in the industry, no matter the route they choose.  Your interview for the airlines starts the day you enroll.

L3 Airline Academy is dedicated to helping their students transition into the Academy as smoothly as possible. With student mentoring and advising provided, as well as assistance with orientations, student activities, transportation, and housing, we aim to be your home away from home.

Students with prior flying experience may be eligible on a case-by-case basis for credit to achieve the FAA pilot certificate hourly requirement. Learn more about the L3 Airline Academy program that is best for you and let your career take flight.
