Tampa Bay Aviation, located in Clearwater, FL at the Clearwater Airpark, announces new name and ownership of the longstanding flight school which has been on location for over 30 years. The new owners and management added helicopter training in Robinson Helicopters as well as the acquisition of an FAA approved helicopter simulator.
Tampa Bay Aviation’s management is experienced first-hand in real world commercial aviation with thousands of hours in both rotor and fixed wing operations. President Zack Taylor states, “Students from all over the country, as well as internationally, can come to Tampa Bay Aviation to work on fixed wing and rotorcraft ratings. Aside from offering dual rating training opportunities we are unique from the majority of helicopter training facilities in that we offer both a helicopter simulator and an R22 instrument trainer, which allow for marginally lower costs for instrument ratings for our students”.
Tampa Bay Aviation is able to offer helicopter instrument ratings at one low, fixed rate. Instrument ratings for private helicopter pilots can be completed for just $12,000. Fixed rates for commercial rated helicopter pilots are offered at $8,000 and instrument add-on ratings for fixed wing pilots are just $6,000. Along with instrument helicopter training Tampa Bay Aviation is also providing helicopter flight training from private to CFII as well as fixed wing flight training and rentals. An on-site testing center is also provided for student FAA written exams.
Located in sunny, Clearwater, FL just minutes from white sandy beaches, Tampa Bay Aviation can arrange transportation and hotel accommodations for out of town students.
