American Flyers plans to begin construction before the end of 2018 on a new state of the art flight training facility adjacent to their current center on Pompano Beach Airpark. Construction is slated for completion by late spring/early summer 2019.

“We are excited to be a part of such a great city and airport and look forward to being able to service our customers more effectively with the addition of our new building,” said Jill Cole, President of American Flyers. “While this new facility is similar in size to our current location, it includes a 5,000 sq. ft. hangar for aircraft, and double the amount of customer parking spaces. This project will not only help us serve our current students, but will also allow us to better serve our new clients including the American Airlines Cadet Program"

American Flyers is working together with Pompano Aviation in redeveloping the property. Pompano Aviation currently has hangars on either side of American Flyers. The redevelopment will allow a more efficient use of airplane ramps and taxiways while also providing more hangars for existing tenant expansion and new businesses at the Airpark according to Greg Spatz, President of Pompano Aviation II.

American Flyers operates six training centers across Florida, Arizona, Texas and New Jersey with a variety of courses from basic private pilot certification to preparing students for an airline career. The school incorporates a fleet of 36 aircraft, 25 simulators and 175 dedicated employees.
