Our airline partnerships and years of experience training pilots for the airlines mean that AFC students get the distinction of being awarded the largest number of conditional job offers in the nation. Pick your pace, earn your degree, and make your way to a career in the skies.

FLIGHT TRAINING WITH A COLLEGE DEGREE

The ACT Program is a 21-month degree program. Through industry expertise, we've created a preeminent curriculum set up for optimized airline pilot training. If you want to be an airline pilot, our Airline Career Training (ACT) Program provides a clear and distinct path to the Captain's seat. As trusted partners to many airlines, AFC is able to offer interviews for employment prior to completion of training. Many of our students receive a conditional job offer during training. Meaning as soon as they complete their flight training, they have a job waiting.

WHAT IS A CAUSING THE PILOT SHORTAGE?

Here’s a little background:

LOW PILOT PRODUCTION

Pilot production over the past 25 years has consistently decreased output year after year.

FEDERAL REGULATIONS

Mandatory rest periods enforce the crew rest so they can't be over worked.

NTERNATIONAL DEMAND

The global community is traveling more than ever taking pilots away from US based airlines.

FORCED RETIREMENT

Pilots must retire at age 65, by law, equaling tens of thousand of upcoming retirements.

AIRCRAFT FLEET

Our fleet of Cirrus SR20's, SR22's, Piper Archers, Arrows & Seminoles, Cessna 172's and Tecnam's are operated and maintained to the highest level of safety. We pride ourselves on having the nicest and safest fleet of aircraft in Southern California and Texas.
