When you train at Sunrise Flight Academy, your home base will be Ormond Beach Municipal Airport. There are many advantages to this airport: the most obvious is the area’s excellent flying weather. Pilot training at SFA typically allows flying 350 days a year. That means you complete your training more quickly than at many other flight schools. Compared to other locations throughout the world, SFA is perfectly located for pilot training. The airport also does not have scheduled airline traffic, so training flights are not delayed because of airline operations. This is a problem at some other airports. For example,nearby Daytona Beach Airport is known for delays because of airport traffic. Delays cost you time and money.
