Earn Your Professional Pilot’s License in Less Than a Year


As a graduate of CFA, you’ll join a worldwide network of successful alumni. Here’s what some of them had to say:

“Since the moment I contacted CFA for the first time, Diana, Heather and Ash were right there to help me figure out the best way for ME to become a pilot. At the school I was greeted always with a big smile. CFA has created for me an amazing flight learning experience, with a good study environment, with all the resources I needed, always with the advice that works best for me, and always with a smile.” – Etai Charit, CFA Flight Student

“Hi Guys, I just want to say thank you for my whole private pilot training back in 2010. Two months ago I passed my final release checkride and now I’m an Airbus 319 First Officer. Hope you are doing great over there! Cheers.” – Alberto Porras Lozano, CFA Graduate

“At CFA, I received the best training and treatment and the instructors are very efficient and experienced. I finished all my flight training from private pilot to multi-commercial in only 7 months, and they saved me a lot of money. Most importantly, they made me a great pilot. On top of all that, they made me feel I am part of a big family – the CFA family, which helped me a lot being far away from home for the first time in my life. CFA is the best place to be in U.S. for flight training and I recommend it to everyone who wants to be a great professional pilot and have a fun flight training experience.” – Jose Angel Pereida, CFA Graduate and First Officer, Volaris Airlines Mexico

“I just finished my flight training at CFA. I have been to a few flight schools, gathering hours here and there, but CFA is, by far, the best school I have ever been to yet. The CFI’s are well qualified and helped me immensely through each step of my training. The staff is warm and welcoming and I really built a solid comradery with my fellow students. This school cared about my success; I wasn’t just a number and they truly encouraged me to be my best. I would highly recommend California Flight Academy to any student who is thinking about becoming a proficient and competent pilot!” – Ali Hafeez, CFA Graduate

“As to where I stand in my career, I am the CEO of a little charter company. We fly 2 gorgeous Cessna 210, and a King Air 200 in Madagascar. I am thankful for my CFA education” – Ed Serre, Madagascar

“I just want to say thank you for my whole private pilot training experience. Two months ago I passed my final release check ride and now I’m an Airbus 319 First Officer!” – Alberto Porras Lozano, CFA Graduate

“After much research I chose CFA. The friends I made here and the knowledgeable instructors have made it very easy for me to secure my future in the skies. In my opinion, this is the best place to study and to get your license.” Maharshi Patel, CFA Graduate – India

“I’m glad I chose CFA, because all of the staff and instructors are very humble and kind. All the students here are very friendly, and I have made friends from all over the world. This makes CFA my home away from home.” Irfan Asif, CFA Graduate – Saudi Arabia/Pakistan

“CFA was my choice from the moment I heard about the school. It’s the experience I got here that is very valuable.” Joseph Obgunbambi, CFA Graduate – Nigeria

“My CFA experience was amazing. The instructors are so loving and caring – the best I could have asked for.” Mitchell Ross, CFA Graduate – Zambia

“CFA was a great experience for me. I had everything to make my first steps in aviation: professional staff, challenging flight environment in one of the most busy airspace in the US. I’m now a Boeing 737 First Officer!” Galina Marakhovskaya, CFA Graduate – Ukraine

“My time at CFA was good, sometimes a bit hard, but I really enjoyed this experience with my friends and the CFA staff.” Juan Carlos Munoz Cardenas, CFA Graduate – Colombia

“I was looking for very good customer service, good location, plenty of airplanes to train in, and good weather. I found everything I was looking for in CFA. When I emailed the school, I received an immediate response from a Captain who was flying in Volaris Airlines. I got very excited!” Luis Manuel Gómez Hernández, CFA Graduate, Mexico
