AeroGuard Flight Training Center announced the opening of its 5th campus, located at the Punta Gorda Airport in Charlotte County, Florida. For AeroGuard, this marks its first campus on the East Coast with other locations in Riverside, California, Austin, Texas, Chandler, Arizona and Phoenix, Arizona.

The curriculum taught at AeroGuard’s locations, including the newly implemented Punta Gorda Flight School, can help students launch their careers at a regional airline in about two years from starting the program.    

AeroGuard CEO Joel Davidson said, "High-quality, safe, career-track flight training has the potential to change lives. Our new campus in Punta Gorda gives us an incredible opportunity to reach new cadets, helping them to create their own bright futures, while we work hard to meet the rising global demand for highly trained pilots.”

AeroGuard’s premier Pilot Pathway Program is offered in partnership with SkyWest Airlines to provide students with a direct path from flight school to employment as a commercial airline pilot. The training center offers an all-inclusive tuition model and reimbursement packages with SkyWest Airlines.
