AFTC was established in 2008 as an alternative to the large, mostly international flight schools that were dotting the Southwest. The founders of AFTC noticed that there existed a void that the truly customized flight schools had once filled. They were places where a student or renter pilot could go where he/she was important and their individual needs as a student were both recognized and fulfilled. AFTC was created for that purpose.
Since then, AFTC has grown to include a new 5,000 square foot training building and over 5,400 square feet of dedicated maintenance hangar. AFTC’s fleet includes a wide variety of aircraft from several varieties of the Light Sport aircraft, through trainers, rentals and multi-engine aircraft, manufactured by Cessna, Piper, Czech Sport Aircraft and Cirrus. Some aircraft are equipped with advanced “glass” panels, or all electronic flight instrumentation, manufactured by Garmin, Avidyne or Dynon.
Veterans have always been an important part of AFTC. The Military Transition Courses for the Airline Transport Pilot rating and CFI add-on are very popular options for transitioning military personnel. The staff believes that AFTC provides the best opportunity for military aviators to pass their check-rides in the least amount of time.
