1 of only 4 flight schools authorized to offer F-1 Visas

PEA proudly holds the distinction of being one of only four flight schools authorized to offer F-1 Visas to international students, making us a global destination for aviation education. At PEA, safety is paramount, quality instruction is our hallmark, and creating a memorable aviation experience is our passion.


Choosing a flight school is not an easy decision and your choice can have lasting effects on your future career. Not all flight schools are created equal and we encourage you to research your different options.
Last year PEA had over 90 students who started their training at a different flight school and then transferred to PEA after they realized their first choice was not the best option for accomplishing their goals or the school was unable to meet student expectations.
If you dream of being a pilot, don’t ever give up
