VT Aviation Academy of America Opens New Houston Location

VT Aviation Academy of America announces that it will open a new location at the West Houston Airport beginning October 2019. The West Houston campus will consist of 15,000 square foot hangar and 2000 square feet of classroom and administrative space. VT AAA will begin accepting enrollments for the first class by mid-August for full-time students in the Professional Pilot Pathway training package.

The Professional Pilot Pathway training package is designed to start students without flight time and graduate them through each phase of flight training. Students will begin with their private pilot training followed by their instrument rating, commercial pilot license, commercial multi-engine license, and their certified flight instructor license. Graduates of the Professional Pilot Pathway will have a guaranteed flight instructor job at one of the VT AAA’s locations as well as scholarships for advanced training programs for certified instrument instructor and commercial multi-engine instructor ratings.

VT AAA will begin taking delivery of several factory new Piper Archers in September and October. The new Piper aircraft will be assigned to the West Houston campus. The Piper Archers are the most popular low-wing training aircraft in the industry and provide a smooth transition between private pilot, instrument, and commercial training syllabi.

Paul Woessner, Vice President and General Manager of VT Aviation Academy of America, commented “We are incredibly excited to open our new flight academy campus in West Houston. We have spent years searching for the perfect location for this new campus, and we finally have at the West Houston Airport. In addition, our new Piper aircraft will be based at the West Houston campus creating the rare opportunity for students to achieve their aviation career goals in both a brand new training facility and new aircraft.”

VT AAA will begin holding information sessions and on-campus tours of the West Houston Campus beginning in September 2019 once construction has been completed. Everyone is encouraged to check out the VT AAA Facebook page as events will be posted there including registration information.

VT Aviation Academy of America provides professional flight training for students focused on careers in aviation in addition to maintenance services at the New Braunfels Regional Airport.
