First Class Aviation Careers

The Sterling Promise

At Sterling Flight Training our mission is to prepare tomorrow’s pilots today. Demonstrating quality, community, safety and dedication to our students and associates, we help you achieve your dreams of living life in the skies.

Through years of training pilots, we have developed a reputation of excellence in multiple sectors of the aviation industry. Our name itself represents our commitment to total excellence and integrity in our instruction, our fleet, and our pledge of thorough pilot preparation to every trainee.

We’re uniquely qualified to provide a full range of pilot training services to help successfully propel students into the aviation industry. Students will gain access to quality, modern aircraft and job placement assistance. 

We are FAA Part 141 and Part 61 approved, and Florida VA approved. As a Cessna Pilot center, the school has access to current training materials and self-testing. Sterling’s affiliation with Liberty University and Purdue University Global also allows access to degree programs and student financing for professional pilot training.

So, welcome aboard the Sterling experience. We know you will be glad you chose to fly with us.


Professional Instruction from Beginning to End

With more than 100 years of combined aviation experience, our staff understands the industry inside and out. We’ve trained thousands of pilots over the last three decades, incorporating many airline best-practices into our curriculum. Our experience means we know the right people, in the right places, to help connect you for future job placement. Partnered with two prestigious universities, Sterling provides quality training and opportunities for your future as an aviation professional.


Mentors & Connections from Day One

From day one you will experience the friendly and family-like atmosphere of Sterling Flight Training. We’re not a pilot factory; our instructors work with each student individually to create a training path that fits their needs and long-term goals. We succeed when you succeed, and we celebrate those success as a community.


Our Strong Safety Culture Puts You First

We offer a wide array of training aircraft, boasting modern technology and an in-house maintenance team. Our strong safety culture means we put you first and take pride in our fleet. Our proven track record demonstrates industry-leading perspectives and professionalism, letting you focus on being the best pilot you can be. All students and instructors are educated on Sterling safety policies and reporting features.


We Succeed, When You Do

At Sterling we’re not just training pilots, we are working to protect the industry we love. In addition to our top-notch pilot training programs, we are developing an Airframe and Powerplant mechanics program and Rotary Transition Program to fill industry demand. We demand that same level of dedication from our instructors and empower students to display dedication in their training to build a better future for aviation.
