Why Choose Brandon Flight Academy?

1. A GREAT TRAINING ENVIRONMENT

In addition to the flight school, Brandon airport serves military, commercial jets, medevac, ag planes  and helicopters on a regular basis.  The control tower and commercial length runway offer a great learning experience, while the low but diverse traffic ensures students have the time to learn safely.  

2. COST EFFICIENT LEARNING

As a not for profit training centre, our training rates are extremely competitive.  With the practice area close by and no delays on the ground or in the air you receive the most efficient educational environment possible.

Brandon Flight Centre offers a continuous open enrollment allowing you to start when you are ready. Additionally, with the small student to instructor ratio and a low airport traffic, accelerated learning is possible because you set the schedule that works for you.  After more than 85 years of operation, we know how to get you flying!
