50 years of experience


We feel blessed that we have had the opportunity to be in business at the Fullerton Airport since 1967. We have trained several thousand pilots, many of them have gone on to fly for the airlines, achieving a life long dream. Others have continued to fly "real airplanes" in personal, missionary and business flights.

I've been a pilot for twenty years, used to fly at another local airport and FBO until I discovered they were taking shortcuts on maintenance. I dropped them like a hot rock and transferred to AFI And never looked back. AFI is family owned and operated, they are a fixture at Fullerton Airport. Their maintenance program and company mechanic, Larry, is second to none. Their CFI's are all first rate, professional and very patient. AFI's fleet of aircraft are clean, perfectly maintained and newer. If you desire to obtain your pilot's license, AFI is the place to go. If you fly elsewhere but tire of high Hobbs aircraft, then give AFI a look, I think you will be very pleasantly surprised.

I chose AFI because of it's excellent location and very reasonable prices. All the equipment and aircraft at AFI are in excellent condition and the staff here are awesome. Overpreperation sums up my checkride experience. The test was a great experience and I owe my certificate to the awesome crew at AFI. 

Learning how to fly is a challenging but immensly rewarding experience; if it's something you're considering, AFI is the place.
