Flight Training Initiative

The AOPA Flight Training Student Retention Initiative is a long-term, industry-wide effort dedicated to increasing the percentage of students who earn a pilot certificate. Facilitating a positive flight training experience will help student pilots achieve their goals while growing the pilot population and strengthening general aviation. See below for resources designed to help student pilots, instructors, and flight schools get the most out of the flight training experience.
