FlightSafety Academy Vero Beach

Beautiful year-round weather is only part of the reason FlightSafety Academy Vero Beach is the optimal place to begin your flight training. The Florida skies offer nearly 320 days per year suitable for flight training, and more than 25 percent of all FAA licenses are issued through the Orlando Flight Standards District Office (FISDO).

But Vero Beach’s unique location and amenities make it the superior choice. With 137 airports statewide, our location offers a wide range of operational scenarios and no landing fees. Our 20-building campus is located minutes away from the beach and the Indian River. Some of the best places to surf, paddleboard and dive are located nearby, including coral reefs just off the coastline. The campus is conveniently located between Orlando and West Palm Beach, and just a short drive to Miami and the Florida Keys for an easy weekend getaway.
