Welcome to Sarasota Aero Club

World Class Flight Training


When people think of Sarasota, FL, they think of World Class.  That is exactly what you will find at Sarasota Aero Club.  Here, we make it our top priorities to offer the best flying lessons, with the best aircraft, and all at the best prices in the Sarasota / Tampa Bay area.  Our membership is made up of student and private pilots from the local area including North Port, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Venice, Sarasota, Bradenton, and Tampa.


All of our aircraft are hangared at the Venice Municipal airport on Venice Island.  Flying from the Venice airport gives us the ability to train in a low traffic environment without large commercial jet traffic and intensive radio communication, and when neccessary make the short hop over to Sarasota International Airport to give our members the opportunity to also train in a high traffic environment.  


One of the toughest things about flying is not knowing how to get started. At Sarasota Aero Club it is easier than you think. We will guide you each step of the way to finding the right path for you in aviation. We offer a variety of services which include: Flight Training, Private Pilot Training, Commercial Pilot Training, CFI training, Multi-engine Rating, Instrument Rating, Discovery Flights, Ferry Flights, and advanced instruction.


Our Flight School is FAA Part 61 and is designed to provide you the most professional and structured flight training experience possible. We have programs available to fit all needs, some of which include housing options for international students looking to complete flight training here in Sarasota.


We are open 7 days a week, 365 days a year with the exception of a few holidays.


Our instructors are some of the best you will find in the country, fully FAA certified with thousands of hours of combined experience. We understand the joy of flying and the power of being able to go where you want, when you want. We can help fufil your dreams of getting into the air the quickest and easiest way possible.
