In Spring 2015 the Van Nuys location will be adding helicopter add-on training as well.
Mr. Montalte states the decision to add an these new locations was due to overwhelming demand from clients in that part of the country and the fact that the company continues to exceed its corporate and financial goals.
"We continue to see a number of positive indications that our clients are turning more to the latest avionics and increasingly insist upon actual training without the use of simulators. We believe there is no substitute for actual training. The antiquated technology of 'Portable Simulators' used by some training organizations reinforces our core belief that actual flying conditions cannot be replicated. We understand the cost of flying continues to increase, however, savings realized using a portable simulator simply cannot compete with actual flying time under ATC control,” said Montalte.
AFIT has 49 highly trained, seasoned and licensed senior instructors located across the United States with heavy concentrations in California, Colorado, Texas, Arizona, Utah and Florida and enormous activity on the East Coast and throughout the Midwest specializing in High Performance aircraft and the G1000. All are "Full-Time" instructors dedicated to AFIT and its core focus of training Private Pilots (PPL) to certification in 14 days and Instrument (IFR) pilots in 10 days with no prior training (less time if some prior training has been achieved).
14-day Private Pilot Training courses are also available at many AFIT locations across the country.
Montalte states, “All of our training is important to the client and all clients receive one-on-one undivided attention each and every day, all day long.”
