Sierra Academy of Aeronautics is an FAA approved Part 141 international flight school that began its operations in 1964. For over 50 years, our mission has been to train the next generation of commercial airline pilots by providing quality Flight Instructors to train our cadets. With that in mind, we proudly welcome the next class of CFI Students to take on the challenge & responsibility of training ab-initio pilot cadets from around the world.


In order to continue in this tradition, Sierra is providing a special discounted training program to produce its own quality Certified Flight Instructors, who in turn will train quality pilots for the airlines. 

Sierra Academy is offering you this first step to acquire a CFI rating and potentially receive your CFII and MEI certificates at the expense of Sierra Academy. To qualify for this discounted price, all applicants must sign a 1,000 hour (Dual Given) contract to fly for Sierra Academy of Aeronautics after completing their CFI Training

Class Dates for 2020:

Upon receiving your CFI certificate, you will then go through Sierra’s standardization class and a Hire Flight with the Chief Pilot or senior instructor.  Upon completion of the standardization & hire flight, you will begin your new career as a Certified Flight Instructor.
