— Capt. Bradley McGuireI started my flight training at a local, Part 61 school in Sarasota, Florida in Feb 2013. After one year of cancelled training schedules, bad airplanes, inexperienced instructors and horrible weather at the Florida Flight School, I had only about 32 Hrs of flight training and was terribly disappointed. I was searching for a better school to continue my training and heard great things about AIA Academy from a friend who got his training and licenses at AIAA. I called the Academy and inquired about their courses and admissions. The admission counselor "Rene" ( later became a great friend) was very informative and patient on the phone, answering all my questions and explained all about the training process and about AIAA. In a few hours, I received the course information package by email. AIA Admissions office, then took care of all my necessary documentation and I was informed about my course start date, the next week itself. I joined AIA Course in April 2014 and completed my Commercial pilot Certifications with Multi Engine rating & CFI on 16 June 2015. AIA Academy's facilities, instructors and airplanes are the best and I am so thankful and happy that I made the decision to move to California and train with AIAA. Thanks AIAA Team.
