About American Flyers
Founded in Ft. Worth, TX, American Flyers has enjoyed its status as both a national and international flight training provider since 1939. Having operated schools across the United States, Central America and Europe, we're proud to have a resume that has included teaching WWII military pilots, providing both airline pilot and flight attendant training, being a 121 Air Carrier – even flying the Beetles around during their first U.S. tour.
In 1980, American Flyers joined forces with Aviation Training Enterprises (ATE), headquartered out of Chicago's Midway Airport. Founded in 1947, ATE was highly respected for their expertise in IFR instruction as well as pioneering the use of flight simulators for both airline and civilian pilots.
While many years have passed, the core-values that made American Flyers and ATE great have remained:
- We still educate professional pilots as well as the businessman and “hobby-pilot”
- We have a very strong international presence in the aviation community
- We continue to enjoy working with the servicemen and women of the US Military and are a VA-Approved flight school
- We have maintained our reputation as instrument training specialists
- Our use of flight simulators remains a key-element in the success of our training courses
We're also proud to be working with Nova Southeastern University to provide the Aviation Human Factors Bachelor's Degree program, and holding true to our tradition of supporting pilots throughout their careers, American Flyers provides renewal certification to nearly 50% of all flight instructors.
Today, American Flyers has training centers in the New York, Ft. Lauderdale, Dallas, Houston and Los Angeles areas, and operates an Airline Training Center out of one of two campuses at the Addison Airport in Texas. We continue to be proud of our service to aviation and look forward to another 76 years of service to the flying populous.
