14-Day Private Pilot Training

I had a great experience with AFIT’s Accelerated PPL program. The two-week course catered well to my busy schedule and my instructor Todd did an amazing job. Although as expected it is a busy two weeks. I would definitely recommend it for anyone pursuing their private Pilot License.

My 14-Day Private Pilot Training

Todd was an amazing instructor! Really helped me feel confident in my abilities. This program definitely takes up all of your time and pushes you hard but being completely immersed in flying and study helped me to retain more information and skill. I took my first solo on day 5 and from there just kept building up my own confidence. Now I’m on to my other certifications

Thanks for everything.

14-Day Private Pilot Training Program


It is a great pleasure to recommend Sam as a CFI and AFIT as a training provider..  I had the pleasure of taking intensive flight training from Sam. As a busy professional, I have tried in the past to maintain a steady regimen of training in order to get my pilots license and failed. I decided that I was going to try an accelerated program, and Sam was my instructor. I blocked off two entire weeks plus sufficient time in advance to take and pass the written test, in a few days, Sam had me soloing and a few days after that I was growing more and more comfortable flying a Cessna 172. At the end of the two weeks I was able to obtain my single engine land, private pilot’s license!

After obtaining my private pilot’s license, I came home and immediately joined the local flying club. Since joining the flying club, I have successfully checked out in the Cessna 150, 172 and the Piper Cherokees. I’m working on obtaining a Taildragger endorsement currently. 

To anyone seeking to obtain their private pilot’s license I would highly recommend Sam and I would highly recommend the AFIT intensive training program.

14-Day Private Pilot Training Course

I am so glad I chose AFIT and instructor Todd to get my Private Pilot course. I learned everything I needed to be a competent pilot, get my certificate and start my life-long dream of being a pilot. It was a busy 14 days of instruction but by the end I had developed all the needed skills to be a proficient pilot. Todd and his many years of flying and instruction were invaluable. Something I would not have probably received had I gone with a local instructor. He knew the right way to share his knowledge and ensure I improved every day. 

I will always be grateful for AFIT and Todd for getting me started and I truly believe this was the best way for me to start flying! I recommend them to anyone who wants to get in the air as efficiently as possible.

Our 10 Day IFR Training Course


Hi Tony,

We wanted to follow up and commend your team on our exceptional experience with AFIT.   Mike is a great instructor all around. He took our flying to the next level with focus, guidance, and expertise. My husband and I chose to do our 10 day intensive together which meant long days of flying and lots of patience from Mike. He helped us improve our skills and knowledge in so many ways in a short time.

Most importantly, Mike has such broad and deep experience of planes, avionics, aviation, and real-life piloting. He brought a thorough understanding of our Cirrus SR20 G3 plus Avidyne avionics. It made a huge difference for us to learn not only IFR flying but also our plane.

Thank you,

10-Day Instrument Training Course

I recently had the opportunity of undertaking the Instrument Rating course with AFIT, and I must say that the experience exceeded my expectations. Under the guidance of my CFII, Ben, I trained at Lincoln Airfield in California. The 10-day intensive program was an eye-opening journey that not only enhanced my flying skills but also let me to achieve my instrument rating in record time.

Traditional training for an instrument rating can be a lengthy process, but AFIT’s immersive approach allowed me to attain the qualification in a fraction of the time. This was made possible by the rigorous daily schedule, which typically involved around 4 hours of flying combined with personal theory study in the afternoons.

Ben, my CFII, played an important role in shaping my experience. His expertise, patience, and commitment to my learning journey were truly commendable. His guidance during flight sessions was invaluable; he not only emphasized precision and technique but also ensured that I developed a deep understanding of instrument procedures and regulations. Ben’s ability to adapt his teaching style to suit my learning pace was key in boosting my confidence as I progressed through the course.

The intense schedule demanded discipline and dedication, but the results were very worth it. It was really rewarding to get the Instrument rating after all the effort. Thanks for everything.

Best regards,

Manuel Costano
