We develop pilots and aviation industry team members who perform safely and professionally.
Piedmont Flight School is one of only a few professional flight training schools under FAA Part 141 and Part 61 rules from Private Pilot Certification through CFI Certification. We are the only flight school within our region with over three decades of experience. PFT offers advanced training for Instrument, Multi-Engine, and Commercial ratings. We also provide training for CFI, CFII, and MEI certificates.
Piedmont Flight Training is the only UNC system flight school partner. Through Elizabeth City State University, an NC Promise school, we act as the exclusive provider of flight training services for ECSU’s aviation science degree with a concentration on flight education for students from Cabarrus, Davidson, Davie, Forsyth, Guilford, Mecklenburg, Randolph, Rowan, Stanly, and Union counties. PFT is also a trusted partner for Liberty University, among others.
Our training is available seven days a week, and our equipment and instruction are available 24 hours a day.
