Some people dream of a corner office. Others aim higher.

Have you ever thought about taking your career to the skies? According to a recent Boeing forecast, there will be a demand for 649,000 pilots over the next 20 years. As of May 2022, the median annual wage for commercial pilots was $103,910, with the highest 10% earning more than $217,530 annually. These salaries come with generous benefits packages and extensive opportunities for travel. If you want to be a pilot, there’s never been a better time to turn your dreams into a profession.


Rexair Pilot Academy offers an accelerated, highly personalized flight training program that will take you from zero time in the cockpit to a commercial pilot position in 8 months. In this time, you will earn your Private Pilot Certificate, Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot Certificate, and Flight Instructor Certificate—all the credentials required to begin flying for a living. For interested students, an opportunity to work as a flight instructor at Rexair will be available following completion of the program.


There are many different types of people who decide to become pilots. Maybe you are a high school student looking for a pathway to a high-paying and fulfilling career that doesn’t require a college degree. Or maybe you are already a professional in a different field but are desiring a more adventurous lifestyle. Whatever your situation, we will work with you to identify a career progression that suits you as an individual—and help you chart a path toward your goals.


At Rexair Pilot Academy, we make it our mission to help you reach your full potential as both a pilot and a professional. With our unique 360-Degree Pilot Training, we will not only help you develop the skills you need to fly an advanced aircraft, but help you hone the professional skills that will give you a distinct advantage in the job market. And because we keep our class sizes small, you will get the personal attention you need to succeed. Included in the program is individual career counseling—we don’t shoehorn you into a particular path because we know that every pilot is unique.

Our program is designed to take you from zero flight time to Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) in 8 months. During this time, you will use simulators and fly the Vans RV-12 to gain the necessary experience to become a commercial pilot. After successfully completing our program, you will be given the chance to become a flight instructor at Rexair to help you gain the extra flight hours needed to get to the next phase of your career.


The Rexair Pilot Academy campus is located at Sebring Regional Airport (KSEF) in Sebring, Florida. Sebring is an ideal location for flight instruction, as the climate provides many clear, sunny days year-round.

The size of the town is big enough that you will have access to amenities such as a shopping mall, movie theaters, boating, and other recreational activities, and yet small enough that you will be able to get around easily without traffic.

Also, there’s no need to worry about finding lodging—we’ve got you covered.  While you’re with us you’ll be staying in Sebring Square, a gated neighborhood with new 3-bedroom houses. You’ll be next door to your classmates, which means you’ll be able to study, network, and recreate with other pilots during your time at our school.
