#FlyVFA – Give Back

When you fly with Vermont Flight Academy, you are helping us give back to the community.

VFA’s FLIGHT VT program helps youth, who could benefit most from seeing the world in a new way through flight!

Aviation is a community – one that historically thrives on the idea of giving back. Every VFA student, renter, or friend helps us share the magic of flight by allowing us to give exciting new experiences to local youth.

Program launching in June 2021!

About Us

Vermont Flight Academy (VFA) is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization located at the Burlington International Airport in South Burlington, Vermont. VFA was founded to promote general aviation and provide high quality flight instruction. We specialize in training business and leisure pilots as well as career aviators through our partnership with Vermont Tech.

From the beginner to expert, the Vermont Flight Academy has the programs to fit where you are. Our comprehensive training plans make learning or practicing easy and fun. Our Certificated Flight Instructors can provide the guidance any pilot can depend on.

Our Aircraft

We are proud to feature a variety of aircraft to meet the needs and budgets of the curious all the way to the highly skilled. Our fleet features the Cessna 172, Cessna 152, Piper Arrow, Piper Cherokee, Piper Aztec, and Champion.


Professional Pilot Program

Vermont Tech and VFA have formed a partnership to train professional pilots for an exciting career in AviationVermont Tech’s Williston campus is home to the bachelor-level degree program in aviation, conveniently under 2.5 miles from VFA.

Students in the Professional Pilot program start flying in their first semester and can become Certified Flight Instructors in their junior year. Students graduate with typically 500 or more flight hours already under their belts. That flight time makes graduates highly valued in the industry. Vermont Tech is authorized by the FAA to certify pilot graduates for the Restricted Airline Transport Pilot (RATP). The authorization is highly advantageous as certified graduates can be hired as professional airline pilots that much sooner, creating a fast track to a career doing what they love.
