Welcome to Flight Test Prep Academy, where we prioritize safety, responsibility, and effectiveness. Established in 2007 as Aviation Summer Camp, our family-run business has evolved into a premier flight school with a fleet of ten planes, including Cessna 172s with traditional and advanced instrumentation, and Cessna 152s, including an Aerobat model. Our commitment to safety is evident as all our planes are equipped with features like ADSB In and ADSB Out.

Learning to fly is an exciting journey that combines ground school instruction with practical flight training. Our comprehensive program covers theory, navigation, meteorology, and aircraft systems. Our FAA-certified instructors provide top-quality training.
