Be A Pilot Career Expo: Sanford, FL - September 25, 2021

Join us at our Flight Academy at Sanford International Airport, Florida, and find out what it takes to become a commercial airline pilot

At L3Harris we've been training pilots for over 30 years from our Florida Flight Academy located at Sanford International Airport.

Visit us on Saturday September 25 (12:30-14:30 ET) for our Be A Pilot Career Expo (BAPCE) and check out our purpose built training facility with one of the largest training fleets in the US and our flight simulator devices. There is also a chance to meet representatives from Endeavor Air and Envoy Air to talk about their career pathways and more!

The Expo will start with a presentation and Q&A session, followed by a campus tour and ending with a flight in one of our FTD simulators. Several of our airline partners will also be attending and on-hand to speak with aspiring pilots and answer any questions about the industry and career pathways.

Our aviation professionals will tell you how we take aspiring aviators with little or no experience and train them to be commercial pilots of the future.

We're proud of our heritage and look forward to welcoming you on campus!
