The First Step to Becoming a Pilot

Efficient Flight Training in Uncontrolled Airspace

No waiting on the ground for a control tower’s clearance. You will be in the air and training in 5 minutes instead of 30+ minutes at a larger controlled airport.

Our students still receive flight training at an airport with an operating control tower, this is required for all private pilot applicants. This means that you will still become confident in radio communication procedures and controlled airport operations during your flight training with Apollo Aviation.

Quality Flight Training on YOUR Schedule

Similar to scheduling a guitar or piano lesson, your flight training can be scheduled around your personal availability.

While it is recommended that a student pilot fly a minimum of two or three times each week, there is no requirement that your life be put on hold to become a pilot.

Apollo Aviation’s flight instructors will customize a training plan around your needs so that becoming a pilot is efficient and effective for your circumstances and goals.

There has never been a better time to become a pilot, and a busy schedule does not have to keep you from earning your private pilot certificate.

Convenient Location in the Greater Birmingham Area

Apollo Aviation is located only 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Birmingham near Hoover, AL at the Bessemer Municipal Airport, just off of Highway 459.  

This means you enjoy an easy commute without the pain and hassle of downtown Birmingham traffic.
