Why Choose SDFTI?
BECAUSE SDFTI OFFERS WORLD CLASS TRAINING & IS PROVEN SUCCESSFUL.... WE'VE BEEN TRAINING PILOTS HERE IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA FOR WELL OVER 20 YEARS.
We give you the type of structured training that every airline desires when picking the best people for the most coveted positions on an aircraft flightdeck. We offer training under both Part 61 and Part 141 with examination authority as prescribed by the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR).
Each student is given the job interview and preparation skills to land a job with the widest number of airlines available in the industry. It is more than JUST an interview; it is a career you want … we get you there quickly, effectively, and safely.
It is more than days a year you can fly, it is the total number of hours and the comfort in which you can safely experience them. AT SDFTI you benefit from the Southern California Flying Experience which gives you the greatest opportunity to log hours day after day.
DIVERSITY OF TERRAIN

There is more variety within 20 miles of SDFTI than any other school on the planet. From multiple Class Bravo commercial and military operations to class 8 controlled civil aviation runways to small uncontrolled strips. Here you have the opportunity to be exposed to virtually anything you will find in your career. We also have one of two "tower enroute" corridors available in the United States.
