Sterling Flight Training Expands

Floridian 141 Operation Spreads Wings Into Tallahassee

Sterling Flight Training, a Florida Part 141 school, is expanding into Tallahassee.

Sterling will be adding another location after its Jacksonville, Florida home, this time in Tallahassee. The new home is based on the firm's acquisition of Florida Aviation Training Center, marking off a "significant milestone in Sterling Flight Training's commitment to providing unparalleled aviation education and training opportunities". The Academy remains partnered with Liberty University and Purdue Global University.

The school reportedly has satellite approval "in the pipeline" for Part 141 operations for its in-house training regimen, ensuring Tallahassee remains ready to hit the ground running.

"As we embark on this exciting journey of expansion to Tallahassee with the acquisition of Florida Aviation Training Center, I am inspired by the boundless possibilities that lie ahead,” said Wayne Heller, CEO of Sterling Flight Training. “Our commitment to excellence, coupled with the rich aviation legacy of Tallahassee, will bring a lot of opportunities to the community in a time where the industry is in demand of well-trained pilots.”

Heller's resume includes stints as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Republic Airways, with the company from 1999 to 2015. While there, he was the "chief architect of a strategic growth plan that focused on training thousands of pilots to support a rapidly expanding organization, creating one of the nation’s safest airlines."
