President

 

Join our Staff!

Due to the dynamic nature of the aviation Industry we are constantly in a revolving hiring station as our Instructors grow in experience and move on to the airlines and regional carriers. As such, IAA is constantly taking in resumes of interested candidates, whom we then train and upon satisfactory completion of our indoctrination are hired. Preference for positions primarily goes to our own CFI academy graduates so we encourage those that have not yet attained their CFI, to enroll in our academy.
