Testimonials & Featured Graduates

OFA is one of the best aviation schools in the nation. Their instruction is high quality. Don't get me wrong. It is not an easy school. In order to have quality pilots, the standards of OFA are higher than I've seen so far in my aviation studies. Their staff is friendly and professional. Their instructors and chief instructors are the cream of the crop. They will work with the students to accommodate their individual needs.

Mansukh Ahwal, Commercial Pilot Alumni

Fast and most affordable route to obtain all of your ratings. If you think you have what it takes, OFA is the place. Everything is fast pace which is good for some but not so good for others. If you are a fast learner and are pretty good with studying on your own, you will do just fine. However, if you don’t have discipline, you will struggle. On the good note, if you succeed with OFA you will succeed anywhere. I achieved all my ratings with OFA in a timely manner. From one pilot to another “Best of luck on your decision”.

Erik Rostek, Commercial Pilot Alumi

Just finished my Commercial pilot certificate with OFA. They are top notch! Reasonable rates when compared to other Florida training facilities and Programs. Their aircraft are newer and properly maintained. The instructors are patient and fun to fly with. Training with them was educational and not boring. I would definitely recommend Orlando Flight Academy.
