Welcome to Pittsburgh Flight

Training Center!


Established in 1980, Pittsburgh Flight Training Center (PFTC) is Pittsburgh’s largest and longest-standing flight school–serving the Pittsburgh area for over 30 years. Our professionally trained flight instructors and staff will exceed your expectations and help you obtain your professional or recreational goals.

We are conveniently located at the Allegheny County Airport (AGC), just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh. We are open seven days a week, typically between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., to accommodate your busy schedule.  Additionally, our pilot shop is stocked with training materials and local charts, and we have our own maintenance department and on-site customer service to fulfill all of your flight training needs.

Pittsburgh Flight Training Center and the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) have teamed up to provide coordinated ground and flight training. Those aspiring towards a career in aviation will be interested in the Associate of Science degree in Aviation Technology, and even casual flyers will appreciate the Certificate Programs.  When training through CCAC, many students are eligible for a monetary performance incentive at the completion of their training.
