Welcome to the Aviation Center at Farmingdale State College which
is located at Republic Airport. The 22,000 sq ft. Aerospace
Facility was built in 1990 and is the primary hub for flight training
at Farmingdale State College. The facility is ideally located to accommodate
students from the tri state area. The facility is less than 2 miles
from the main campus making it an easy commute, or the student can
take public transportation from the main campus. There is public transportation
to/from the LIRR and is a few miles from all major highways.
We are the largest collegiate
Flight School in the Northeast Region and the only SUNY School to
offer a 4 Year Degree Program in Aeronautical Science. The Aviation
Center averages 5,800 Flight Hours a Year in Solo and Dual Flight
Instruction. We average over 5 FAA Certification Rides per month and
over 20 Student Progression/Stage Checks per month.
Our programs are not limited to finding just one job. They will

Science and are designed to open as many career doors as possible.
