Connecticut Flight Academy

Connecticut Flight Academy’s fleet includes a quartet of Piper aircraft, in addition to an FAA-approved flight simulator. The school's air and ground flight training equipment allows certified instructors to help students of all skill levels accomplish their aviation goals, whether they want to earn a pilot's license or figure out which aeronautical terminology to use when talking to pigeons. Furthermore, the school's location at Hartford-Brainard Airport gives students proximity to Boston and New York airspace, making for good practice with high-traffic areas and New England’s swift weather changes.
