What Our Customers Have To Say
  • My husband did this on his birthday, and absolutely loved it. All the staff was friendly, and the kids got to hang out by the hangar and watch the plane take off and land. Fun time, highly recommended! He said he’ll be back!
  • The entire experience was phenomenal! I bought it as a birthday for my boyfriend. His dream is to become a pilot. Our flight instructor was Yoav. He explained everything very well and even took pictures for us! Our instructor truly maximized our hands on time. This lovely experience was certainly a good way to start off my boyfriend’s career. The staff was also very friendly overall.

    About Washington International Flight Academy

    For more than 20 years, the FAA-certified flight instructors at Washington International Flight Academy have safely guided pupils skyward and imbued them with the skills necessary for numerous licenses and certifications. Under an instructor's watchful eye, guests control a Cessna 172 on a 30-minute airborne trek during discovery flights, which can later be applied toward courses for a private or commercial pilot’s license with optional multiengine rating. A commercial pilot’s license qualifies more seasoned flyers for instructor certification, where they learn how to teach essentials, including how to tell the difference between a landing airplane and a diving roc.

    Along with in-depth courses, Washington International Flight Academy accommodates patrons with rentals of its massive fleet, charts and piloting supplies from its fully stocked shop, and lodging for out-of-state students.
