History of Encore Flight Academy
Encore Flight was established in 2005, not by investors or businessmen, but by pilots who were exceptionally enthusiastic about the science and joy of flying, with the goal of taking flight instructions to the next level. Since then, Encore Flight has acquired Van Nuys Flight Center, with its decades of experience and expertise in providing flight instructions to the public. We have further acquired Hollywood Aviators, who provided flight instructions and sight seeing services for many years. These acquisitions have allowed us to add decades of knowledge and experience to our team of highly motivated experts.
Biggest Flight School, at Busiest General Aviation Airport in the World
Today, Encore Flight is the prominent flight school at Van Nuys airport, the world’s busiest general aviation airport, and Los Angeles generally. We are the only school at Van Nuys airport, and one of very few in Los Angeles, with Four FAA Approved Flight Simulators, allowing us to provide world class education to our students. We have the most sophisticated Fleet of Aircraft for training, including Diamond Aircraft models used by the United States Air Force to train pilots. We also provide high level and complex instructions, not otherwise possible in aircraft, in our brand new, FULL MOTION FAA-Approved Flight Simulator.
We aspire to provide the highest level of service and education, fueled by the enthusiasm and passion for flying in every member of our team. To date, we have provided Discovery Flights to more than 7,000 people. Our syllabus is created by commercial airline pilots, and is designed to provide the most comprehensive and cost efficient program for any level of training. Many of our students who complete our commercial pilot training program later start their careers at commercial airlines. Through this carefully designed curriculum, we have been able to achieve an exceptionally high first time passage rate.
We look forward to meeting you soon at our main office at Van Nuys airport!
