Survey time!

Tell us what you think, what you really, really think

Since 2012, AOPA and the You Can Fly team have been surveying flight school students to find out what instructors and schools are doing right in training, and who are the best.

It’s the Flight Training Experience Survey, and we’ve recognized many outstanding schools and instructors and thereby helped students find the best person or school for their training. It’s nationwide, so even if you’re a pilot in Poughkeepsie, you can find the best instructor for your individual needs. We also have identified best practices through these surveys, so schools and instructors can learn how to up their game. The survey is now open. From September 1 through October 31, take the survey and give us your thoughts; really, tell us what you think!

The survey encourages anyone who has taken flight training in the past 12 months to candidly share their training experiences. Responses are used to measure the overall performance of the respondent’s flight training providers and spotlight areas where they are successful and where they have opportunities to improve.

Survey participants include pilots of all experience levels, from new students to those earning advanced ratings or taking a flight review.

Survey results are used to select recipients of the Flight Training Experience Awards. Distinguished, regional, and national award winners will be announced at Redbird Migration, April 11 and 12, 2023, at the EAA Aviation Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
