Located under the sunny skies of Phoenix, Arizona, TransPac Aviation Academy training programs are a great opportunity to launch your pilot career while training in an enjoyable resort location. Our superior weather permits us to fly an average of 360 days a year!

Arizona offers more than just great weather. Phoenix also provides a varied and challenging flight training environment. TransPac students are able to practice at thirteen different airports in the immediate Phoenix area and get exposure to the complex Class B airspace surrounding the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. The southwestern United States is populated with a wide selection of destinations for cross country training. In addition, our campuses located within a short flying distance of our visual practice areas so that valuable training time is not wasted in transit.

TransPac's large fleet of over 60 Piper Archers and Piper Seminoles are maintained by our staff of highly qualified A&P mechanics in TransPac's own FAA certified maintenance facility. The large size of our fleet combined with in-house maintenance facilities and staff means that we have plenty of airplanes ready for maximum flight operations every day. Our students don't wait for aircraft to become available.

TransPac Aviation Academy

TransPac is also proud of our highly trained corps of instructors. Each one of our instructors is required to attend an initial training course that ensures all of our students receive standardized instruction that conforms to our high standards. Once instructors hit the line and begin working with students, they are required to complete on-going training and proficiency checks to ensure that our instructors are the best in the industry!

Instructing is a great way to gain flight time and experience to make a pilot more competitive for their next flight job. The good news for our students is that we are always looking for high quality instructors! TransPac trains over 350 international students per year that return to their home country after earning their commercial pilot license. That means that we have plenty of opportunities for our own graduates to become flight instructors right here at TransPac.

Another way to gain a competitive edge in the pilot job market is to complete advanced pilot training such as our Air Crew Education (ACE) course. This course is designed to provide the student with a solid foundation in modern airliner operations. The curriculum includes ground training in CRJ200 aircraft systems and procedures. After ground training, the course moves into the CRJ200 simulator for hands on training.

Great weather, high aircraft availability and superior instructors mean that you will be able to maximize your aviation training every day at TransPac Aviation Academy. Our students go from zero experience to a fully qualified commercial pilot in ten months or less. Once done with training, TransPac offers exciting opportunities to advance your career. Let us turn your dream of becoming a professional pilot into reality!
