Yes, we have a 24 hour fitness center on site accessed via a pin code, that contains free weights, dumbbells, cables, benches, and 2 treadmills. 

Skyborne has a fleet of over 50 Piper aircraft on campus consisting of a healthy combination of Warrior, Arrow, and Seminole models.

Skyborne has finance and funding partnerships in place through two major funding partners – Sallie Mae and Meritize. You can find the link under the ‘About’ section. 

There are intakes each month and applicants will be screened according to their availability. For example, if you’re looking to start in 12 months’ time, your application will be screened and then put on hold to progress with the selection process nearer to your available time.

Living on site is not required but strongly encouraged for full training immersion and convenient travel between accommodation and training center.

Ground school M-F 8AM-4PM. Flight schedules vary, and students fly 3-5 times a week. Each flight requires 2-3 hours of studying. 

Our main goal is to maintain a 6-1 student to instructor ratio.

We are currently not accredited to receive federal funding such as the GI Bill. Please monitor our websites/social media for an update on this in the future.

We are currently not accredited to receive federal funding such as the 529 Plan.

We have class start dates on the first Monday of each month.

Foreign visas are currently not being sponsored.

You cannot attend Skyborne with any rating (PPL or more). However, we will accept students with hours towards their PPL without completing their license. You will also need to restart your PPL training with us, as your hours in that course will not transfer. Your previous flight hours will still be valid under total time.

Our policy is to work with each student individually to allow them to progress at their own pace. However, multiple failures of either ground school or flight courses will require a Training Review by the staff and can result in training termination if no progress is being observed.

Employment as an instructor is not guaranteed as it is based on both Skyborne’s staffing needs and student performance during training.

Our course flow and hours are designed for the average student’s progression. If additional flying hours are required due to student performance, both the student and Skyborne will agree on a specific cost which is then included in an “Additional Training Agreement” format called an ATA.

There is an inground pool, student lounges, grill-pits, a sand volleyball court and a basketball court. Plenty of events are held around campus including basketball tournaments, bake sales, SOUPer Friday and celebration of holidays for domestic and international students.
