Thank you for your interest in Ascent Aeronautical Academy. We have been flying and instructing for more than 20 years. Ascent Aeronautical Academy is a FAA Approved 141 school and a FAA 145 repair station. Our maintenance is done on our premises by factory trained mechanics that are on the Ascent Aeronautical Academy staff. This helps for fast turnaround on aircraft and safer for you. We fly the Hélicoptères Guimbal Cabri G2, the newest and most advanced training helicopter in the industry. An FAA approved simulator is also available to help aid in your training and it counts towards your total flight time. FAA Medical and Flight Examiners are available on site as well as Written Exam testing.
Our company offers financial aid programs thru AOPA, Pilot Financing and if you are in the armed forces, the VA. Most of these programs have low interest rates which can minimize your financial concerns. We are open seven days a week and training is done on a one on one basis. Each student gets a 2 hour block on the schedule and our instructors work at the convenience of the students.
Our main goal is teaching future pilots like yourself and bringing you into the exciting world of helicopter aviation. From piston to turbine we allow our students to go at their own pace. Some of our instructors are now flying for Commerce Bank, Channel 3, Fox 29, Channel 11, Fox New York, Liberty Helicopters and more. We are also the official training center for the New Jersey State Police and trained the Massachusetts State Police and Philadelphia City Police.
We are pleased to offer an introductory flight which gives you an opportunity to visit our facilities and a hands on experience to fly in one of our helicopters for $250.00.
Thank you again for your interest and please visit us soon. Good Luck in your new venture.
