International Flight School
Welcome to Hummingbird Aviation’s International Pilot Program. It is here that you will find a program unlike any other. We know each student is unique and use this knowledge to individualize the training of all our customers. We keep the student to instructor ratio low which allows us to devote more time towards the education of each client. Our belief is that establishing a good rapport between a student and his or her instructor is vital towards maximizing the quality of training for every pilot. Because of this, we match each student with an instructor that best emulates their personality and learning style. We try our best to keep the students with a single instructor through the entirety of their training. This helps the students receive a thorough and efficient education while avoiding time wasted acclimating a pilot to a new instructor.
