Aerocademy was founded in 2007 to give future and current SLO area pilots a place to further their aviation education. We take pride in creating a sense of community by having Saturday morning open house gatherings, hosting Safety Meetings and participating in local aviation events.
Aerocademy is known as the place to go for top quality learning from our outstanding, dedicated and professional instructors. We welcome students from all over the world to fulfill their dreams of flight.
Whether you are a private pilot candidate seeking your license in less than 30 days, to a Certified Flight Instructor candidate seeking coaching, and all the licenses/certificates in-between, as well as flight reviews, instrument proficiency checks and aircraft checkouts – Aerocademy offers the full spectrum for the dedicated candidate/pilot.
Come meet the community and join us at SLO 99s, EAA and SLOPA meetings and events. Get to know the controllers from our tower. We welcome you to visit us and see the difference.
Come and see us, or call ahead to verify if we have what you need in stock. We carry VFR charts, AFDs, logbooks, kneeboards, FAR/AIMs, written exam study books, OEG/PTS booklets, PLEXUS, Carbon Monoxide detectors, flashlights, checklists, fuel testers and a small supply of miscellaneous books and knick-knacks. If you don't see it here, we can order it for you or help you find a source.
