About Coast

The Coast Flight Training Experience

We are different from the rest.

At Coast Flight Training, we are here to ensure your success.

Simply training is not enough. Unlike other flight schools, Coast Flight is not a pilot mill – we advocate for you at every stage to safeguard your success. We will not allow you to enroll if you don’t meet the criteria to become a pilot. We will not let you invest your time and money without first ensuring you qualify to become a pilot. Our primary business goal is not our bottom line, it is for our pilot candidates to be the best – professional, responsible, highly trained pilots who the airlines will hire – your success is how we define success.

Why do we position our flight school in this way?

Through our relationships with the airlines, we understand the needs they face when hiring pilots. In additional to the national pilot shortage, most airlines experience a lack of qualified, professional pilots who apply for careers with them. They note several factors: Regional Airlines find when they interview candidates after they have completed all of their training, that, at best, only 50% are qualified to be offered a position.

  • The candidates either have medical or background issues that prohibit them from becoming a commercial pilot. The candidate could have been informed and screened for these issues long before ever spending their money and time with the average flight school.
  • Candidates from other flight schools do not have the leadership nor professionalism required to fly commercially. This is an integral part of flight training which the average flight school does not focus on.
  • Candidates do not have the aptitude to be hired as a commercial pilot. Again, screening before starting your training would expose the aptitude challenges a candidate might face.

How do we protect you from failing before you even begin your training?

Coast Flight created a solution for the airlines and the pilot candidates. Through our Aviation and Career Training Program – ACT™

The ACT Program advocates for candidates long before they ever invest their time or finances. Coast Flight Training prescreens all applicants prior to them ever beginning their training. Our four tiered prescreening process empowers candidates to make informed decisions prior to pursuing your career or investing your well earned money. The screening processed developed by Coast Flight is inclusive and extensive to better serve you. No other flight school offers this program.

We work in partnership with the airlines to fully understand their requirements. ACT utilizes the parameters the airlines establish; we provide counseling throughout the training process and our leadership is available to you every step of the way; leadership and professionalism are also part of our core curriculum. Our direct relationship with regional and major airlines keeps you in the pipeline for career placement.

We are here to protect you, to guide you and to train you to ensure your success. Our Core Values demand we provide a level of training that exceeds industry standards.
