SANFORD, Fla. (June 27, 2014) – L3 Airline Academy , an accredited global flight school, recently earned Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges’ (ACCSC) approval to provide additional offerings for the Taiwan Pilot Training Program.
The newly accredited programs join the academy’s robust list of ACCSC approved offerings, further addressing the aviation industry’s global need for professional pilots.
“With an anticipated global shortfall of 1 million new commercial airline pilots and maintenance technicians in the next 20 years, this accreditation will allow us to make an immediate impact in the aviation industry by addressing the tremendous and urgent need for highly skilled pilots and aviation professionals,” says L3 Airline AcademyVice President and L3 Airline Academy Executive Director Hank Coates. “These accredited programs will provide our students the professional training they need to pursue immediate careers in Taiwan.”

That simple dream minimizes cultural, ethnic and political barriers and brings us all together in pursuit of flight.
L3 Airline Academy takes pride in its successful history of providing the airline industry safe, employable pilots. We are passionate about helping our students learn how to fly and achieve their dreams by placing them with successful domestic and international airlines.”
