Join us at our Flight Academy at Sanford International Airport, Florida, and find out what it takes to become a commercial airline pilot!

Be A Pilot Career Expo: Sanford, FL - June 19, 2021

At L3Harris we've been training pilots for over 25 years from our Florida Flight Academy located at Sanford International airport.

Visit us for our Become A Pilot Career Expo (BAPCE) and check out our purpose built training facility with one of the largest training fleets in the US - including Piper Archer and Diamond aircraft - and our flight simulator devices.

The Expo will start with a presentation and Q&A session, followed by a campus tour and ending with a flight in one of our FTD simulators. The teams from Air Wisconsin, Endeavor Air and SkyWest Airlines will also be attending and on hand to speak with aspiring pilots and answer any questions about the industry and career pathways.

Our aviation professionals will tell you how we take aspiring aviators with little or no experience and train them to be commercial pilots of the future.

We're proud of our heritage and look forward to welcoming you on campus!

Session One: 10:30-12:30
Session Two: 11:30-13:30
