Tampa Bay Aviation has an incredible fleet and are very professional. They helped me find an AME and made my flight review very enjoyable.

Kevin C.

“Known to be the best Part 61 school for a reason!”
Tampa Bay Aviation, located at Clearwater Airpark, boasts an amazing fleet of fixed wing and rotor craft aircraft,that are always kept in excellent condition, ready to fly at a moments notice. This flight school has the best team of CFIs I have ever trained with. Taking into account the excellent rentals rates for amazing quality aircraft, with highly experienced CFIs and staff, it is truly safe to say the TBA is one of the top Flight Schools in the nation!
