Atlas Aviation, operating at Peter O. Knight Airport since 2004 and Plant City Airport since 2018, provides full service fixed base operation support and comprehensive flight training in an easy going, fun atmosphere.
Why train with us?  Our customers ranked us among the best flight schools in the country.  
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), the world’s largest aviation organization, conducts an annual survey of flight students’ experience with their flight school.  Our students’ responses earned Atlas Aviation AOPA’s Flight Training Experience Award, Distinguished Flight School for 2018, and again in 2019. *
Our team of professional flight instructors will train you in clean, safe, reliable, modern aircraft maintained to exacting standards by our in-house certified technicians.  We train using a proven curriculum developed by King Schools, the leader in aviation education tools and resources.  We know what we are doing, and our customers agree.
To get started email Chief Pilot Dave Presnell at, or call the location that works best for you and schedule a Discovery Flight!  This introductory lesson provides you with the opportunity to meet with an instructor and even take the controls of one of our training airplanes for a half hour flight.  
We are open daily from 7AM to 7PM.
