Success is Cleared for Takeoff at Vermont Flight Academy

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Scenically tucked in between Lake Champlain and the Winooski River, Burlington International Airport (KBTV) is the home of the Vermont Flight Academy (VFA). The Vermont Flight Academy Facebook page announces each new pilot as they earn their wings, showing the success and pride of this nonprofit 501(c)(3) flight school.

The School

The Vermont Flight Academy is the sole flight school in the state to instruct under FAA approved Part 141 rules and also instructs under Part 61. The facility has 16 aircraft from single piston trainers to tailwheel instruction. Also provided is seaplane instruction including the multi-engine seaplane rating in their Twin Sea Bee. For the bad weather days and for the aviator on a budget, the academy also has four FAA approved simulators on site, to include the full motion Redbird Simulator.

The Degree

Vermont Flight Academy has partnered up with Vermont Technical College to offer a Bachelor of Science (BS) in professional pilot technology. Upon completing this four year degree, students will have  logged around 250 hours of flight time and have become Certified Flight Instructors (CFI).  Started in 2012, the partnership between Vermont Flight Academy and Vermont Technical College has prepared many pilots for takeoff into a career in aviation.

Aircraft Rental

The instructors and Vermont Flight Academy will provide a check out in each new make and model aircraft a pilot may rent. Along with this routine check out, non-owned aircraft insurance, also known as renters insurance, is required. VFA recommends the minimum coverage listed below:

  • $250,000 for Non-Owned Bodily Injury and Property Damage Excluding Loss of Use of Non-Owned Aircraft
