"We're excited to open our doors of this beautiful new flight training center to our students and the San Diego community," Matthew Johnston, president of California Aeronautical University, said. "The new facility features classrooms, dedicated space for flight planning, direct access to the ramp, our Redbird flight simulator, and plenty of room to grow."

The new facility is part of CAU's ongoing goal to improve resources and services for students. CAU expanded into San Diego in 2018, but moved into this newer, larger facility to accommodate its growing student body.

"We've been seeing more and more interest in aviation from the San Diego market recently," Johnston said. "With such a rich community of veterans, active military members, and other aspiring pilots, we're honored to partner with these students on their aviation journey and look forward to helping them reach their career goals."

CAU offers programs in aviation, aviation business, and aircraft maintenance with campuses in California and Arizona. The company says students can earn six flight certificates and ratings along with their degree and graduate program in about three years.
