First Landings was founded by professional aviators as a flight training center in 2009 to bring pilot training to the Central Florida region focusing on fun, safe, affordable flying.  Our success has been based not on flight hours or revenue but on the proficient safe pilots that FLA has been producing since its first day in business.

Since opening our doors for business FLA has shared that joy with over two thousand individuals and that number continues to grow every day.  FLA takes pride in offering a well-maintained, safe, and diversified aircraft fleet.  Our facilities and aircraft are state of the art, and we conduct our training in a relaxed, fun, and safe atmosphere.  We promote a community that fosters our love of aviation.  We hope you join us, whether you are a new comer to aviation or a seasoned pilot, FLA would like to be the place where you start a life long career.

“Just finished my Commercial pilot certificate with First Landings. 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 First Landings to anyone looking to start a pilot career.”

Thomas Polan

“First Landings 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 First Landings 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.”

“Fast and most affordable route to obtain all of your ratings. If you think you have what it takes, First Landings 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 FLA you will succeed anywhere. I achieved all my ratings with FLA in a timely manner. From one pilot to another “Best of luck on your decision”.”
