About Us

Continental Aviation Academy, LLC is a dynamic company specializing in preparatory pilot courses to aspiring professional pilots. Continental Aviation Academy was founded to help low time pilots successfully transition into a jet aircraft of any type and category.

The dynamics of jet flying is entirely different from flying a piston power airplane, with this in mind, our courses have been tailored to better prepare pilots and help ease the jet transition “pains” of learning new concepts such as high altitude, and high speed flying, as well as multi crew operations.

Our programs have been designed and engineered to emulate a typical airline ground school. Therefore, our courses can be taught under a web based format, either within a class environment guided by an instructor, or as a home-study format on-line. Either way, your learning success is guaranteed.
