Student Life in Los Angeles

Location, location, location! Beautiful weather, great beaches, awesome attractions, what more could you ask for? Southern California offers some of the best flying weather in the country. It's no wonder there is such a rich aviation history in the area. With over 350+ good flying days each year, there's more time to focus on accomplishing your flying goals and less time being grounded.


Of course, there's more to flying than just having great weather! California is a state that offers many interesting flying environments, from deserts to mountains to coastal areas. The airspace in SoCal can be regarded as some of the most challenging in the world; however this offers a great learning environment for our students. It's often said that, "if you can learn to fly in LA, you can fly anywhere in the world!"

Things to Do in LA!

One thing is for sure, you will never run out of things to do in Southern California! There's something for everyone, from beach-going activities to amusement parks to nighttime entertainment. Whatever you're looking for while you're here, you'll find it.

Luckily we're in the big city .... so transportation is easy! If short-term transportation is what you desire, we recommend the trusted Lyft or Uber services to get you around. However, if needed, we can arrange to have a rental car for you. If you're coming from out of town and are flying into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you can take the convenient Van Nuys FlyAway. Buses run seven days a week on a set schedule and run between LAX and the Van Nuys Terminal which is only a few blocks from our facility. Give us a call and we'll pick you up!
