Aero Academy

Aero Academy

North Coast Flight School won the Aviation Council of Pennsylvania "Education Award" for excellence in Aviation Education for FOUR years in a row. Our unique approach to exposing kids as young as 10 years old to flying and aviation careers set the aviation industry's tongues wagging. No one had ever thought of it. What was originally a group of twelve kids running around an airport having the time of their lives has now grown into a national program.

North Coast Flight school is now  in the process of revitalizing the Aero Academy Program.  Look for more new and fun ways to expose your children to the wonderful world of flight.  Classes will be forming in early 2024.  Watch for our latest addition to our Aero “Family”…    FLYING ACES ADULT ACADEMY
