Aerotex Aviation is a Texas based flight school, and a flying club. While we currently operate under 14 CFR Part 61 of the FAA, we are in the application process of additionally obtaining our 14 CFR Part 141 certification to give students an option for training.
The main advantage to training under the Part 141 flight school structure, is that good students can progress quickly. Under Part 141, students can gain certificates with fewer hours in the airplane. For example, a private pilot certificate requires 40 flight hours under Part 61, but only 35 hours under Part 141. In addition, the commercial pilot certificate can be accomplished in just 190 flight hours at a Part 141 school, as opposed to 250 hours under Part 61.
Aerotex Aviation flight academy trains new and existing pilots from private pilot certificate, thru airline transport pilot rating (ATP.) We also offer time-building, license conversion, and many other ratings.
Aerotex Aviation flying club is a member operated organization that provides affordable access to aircraft rental. Our club also provides flight training, flight planning facilities, pilot supplies and associated services. We organize social functions, fly-ins and fly-outs to other airports and so forth.
Flying is one of the most fun and challenging activities you will ever experience, and that's what makes it so rewarding. You too can join the ranks in the sky by learning to fly with ATA Flight Academy!
