ETL Aviation Awarded Distinguished Flight School 2024.

For the second year in a row, ETL Aviation received the Distinguished Flight School award from the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA).  AOPA is the world’s largest aviation association and conducted a Flight Training Experience Survey of over 800 flight schools. ETL Aviation was one of a few flight schools to receive the Distinguished Flight School award.

The Flight Training Experience Survey was created to highlight the best flight training the industry has to offer. “Successful flight training is about more than just learning to fly. Building a sense of community to support the people who are learning takes the experience to a much higher level where they can excel. This year’s instructors and schools have clearly brought their customers into the pilot community,” said AOPA Foundation Sr. Director Flight Training Education Chris Moser.

The 2024 awards were drawn from flight students and pilots who voluntarily reviewed their flight training experience this past fall through an AOPA online customer satisfaction survey. The process yielded an evaluation of 780 different flight schools and 1,202 individual flight instructors. Learn more about the awards at

At ETL Aviation, we are grateful to receive this award and we look forward to continually serving our students in achieving their flight training goals.
