About Us

Pilot Institute™ was created to help people achieve their dreams of flight. Our mission is to create world-class courses that remove the friction from passing the FAA’s tests. This is summed up in our motto “Aviation Made Easy”.


Educating the Next Generation of Pilots



We are headquartered in sunny Prescott, Arizona. We have taught well over 75,000 students in 98 countries so far and we have a 99% success rate on our courses.


All of our courses are created and taught by a certified Federal Aviation Administration Commercial Pilot, Flight Instructor, and Remote Pilot. All of our instructors are not only experts in their field, but they are also proven educators who make learning fun and engaging.


We have courses on all types of flight from drones to airplanes. We are always building out our catalog to offer more to our students. It’s also our goal to regularly update our courses to make sure they provide the maximum value.


Our Values Put You First



Our north star value is to put our students first. Our goal is that students finish our classes being “Connected, Current, Capable, & Confident”.
We make sure our students can connect with each other and network with large interactive groups on Facebook. We encourage students to get to know each other also in our courses. Additionally, it’s fast and easy to get help from our instructors.
All of our courses are always accurate and up-to-date. We regularly update courses to adhere to changes from the FAA. Additionally, we have weekly industry updates on our YouTube channels which keep people informed on changes as they happen.
It is our goal that students are knowledgeable after finishing a course. We track metrics to ensure that students are actually learning and retaining the information.
It’s not enough to be knowledgeable without being able to put it into practice. We combine theoretical knowledge with practical skills to maximize real world outcomes for our students. Our students finish our classes with knowledge beyond the FAA exam.

All of our courses have a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. We make it simple to get your money-back if you are not happy in the first 30 days – hassle and risk-free.
