Learn about how we started and why we are proud to still be serving our local community today!

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. At VFA we offer instruction through collegiate and non-collegiate paths. Whatever pilot certificate, rating, or endorsement you’re looking to obtain, we have a skilled and professional individual to teach you. We do everything we can make your goals and aspirations come true! We do everything we can to accommodate your schedule and your needs. We are open 7 days a week and we fly year round.

The combined experience of our team of Certified Flight Instructors, maintenance team, office staff, and management ensures that you will have a positive, professional experience every time! Fun is a huge part of our training, and our company culture and we share the fun experience without sacrificing safety. Safety is at the core of everything we do at VFA. It’s a way of life, and each person has a personal obligation to ensure that they do their part to maintain a safety culture for themselves, for the customer and the area around us. 

We understand that aviation is a high-risk environment, so VFA has developed and implemented company-wide Safety Practices and Procedures in line with industry standards. We understand that safety management affects everything we do and everywhere we operate. VFA is committed to maintain a safe, healthy, and sustainable environment wherever we operate – for our people, for our guests and for the valued customers we are employed to serve.+
