We Don’t Just Train Pilots, We Create Aviators
Aviation is not just about flying, it's is about leadership, safety, and embracing a sense of adventure. Aviation is hours of study, maintaining your health at a high level, and joining a community of professionals that author the pages of history. It isn’t easy, and the price can be high, but if you want a rewarding career that you will never regret then it's well worth the journey. Be part of the next generation of aviation professionals and begin your career as a pilot with USATS.
How do you judge aviation training quality? Expensive aircraft and nice training facilities? Or, do you look at success, safety, and experience?

Our graduates fly in every sector of the aviation industry throughout the world, so no matter which of the hundreds of career paths you choose you'll find that at least one of our graduates has blazed a path for you.
World-Class Training Programs

(We often hire our graduates as instructors to help build quality hours and experience.)
Diamond DA-42 Simulator
The Diamond DA42 ATD simulator at USATS is our FAA approved advanced ATD trainer that allows our students to transfer a more significant amount of learning from this training device to the actual aircraft.
As a ‘one of a kind’ simulator based of the G1000XI and DA42 trainer it allows a high-quality level of training at a more cost-effective option than completing all of your training in our actual DA42 aircraft.
Additionally, it is a great G1000 trainer regardless of the aircraft you fly.
Here is an example of how many hours of FAA approved simulator training you can use on this advanced DA42 ATD device while working toward your desired qualification:
Log 2.5 hours towards your PPL (Private Pilot License)
Log 20 hours towards your Instrument Rating
Log 25 hours towards your ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot License)
Log 50 hours towards your CPL (Commercial Pilot License)
Recent Flight Experience (to maintain currency)
Instrument Proficiency Check (partial)
Instrument Practical Test (partial)
