“In Orlando, there’s not a better option for flight training. This school is very close to their practice area, so flying to a place to practice isn’t a worry. They’re also at an uncontrolled airport, so you don’t have to worry about taxing around for a long time and waiting to take off.

One of the best values for the money, with knowledgeable instructors and a friendly office staff.”

- Andrew Barton, First Officer PSA Airlines

“When you make up your mind and decide now is the time, look no further than First Landings Flight School. Maybe your goal is to get your pilot certificate in record time with no simulators, just real stick and rudder time and lots of it, this is the place. Easy scheduling with polite, professional aviators that love what they do will change your life forever. Don’t procrastinate any longer, do what you’ve been dreaming about once and for all! You’ll be happy you did. I love this place and highly recommend it. I’m on top of the world now,  looking down on creation, and it feels ethereal. Just do it!”

- Dave Mitro, Sport Pilot

“As I am from Switzerland, I took the Accelerated Sport Pilot Program and finished training in about 15 Days. Andrew was a great instructor, who not only taught me how to fly, but also became a good friend. Everyone at First Landings is very nice and professional. My time at First Landings learning to fly has been an amazing experience, and I highly recommend First Landings to anybody interested in learning how to fly! Thank you Andrew, Adam, Joey and everybody involved at First Landings for helping me fulfill a lifetime dream!”

- Tobias Meyer, Sport Pilot
