Andover Flight Academy, (AFA), is tucked away in a beautiful valley in the wooded hills of Andover, NJ. at Andover-Aeroflex Airport. We're close enough to be easy to get to (only 50 minutes from downtown Manhattan), but far enough away to retain our rural charm.

But it's not the beautiful scenery which brings people to the Andover Flight Academy, it's the training. Nowhere else in the tri-state area is such a unique line of aircraft, services and training made available to the general public.

Since 1987 we have specialized in teaching the art of flying tailwheel airplanes. We have a SEASONED staff of instructors, some with over 10,000 hours of tailwheel time. We have been internationally recognized as the premiere school for tailwheel instruction. We have been featured in many flying publications including Private Pilot (May '95), Aero International (Mar. '96), USA by Air (Aug. '99) and EAA Sport Aviation (Mar. '00). Some of our well-known clients include Hollywood celebrities Harrison Ford and James Brolin.
