Whether you want to fly in Tampa or Plant City, Atlas Aviation is a leader in Flight training. You can trust us to train you to become a safe and confident pilot.

We have a full line of rental aircraft, including Cessna 172SP Skyhawks and a Cessna 162 SkyCatcher Light Sport Aircraft (LSA); a short checkout flight will get you on your way with ultra-modern avionics. For “real” cross country travel, try our glass cockpit Cessna 182 or our Cirrus SR-22 GTS. We offer the convenience of 24-hour online scheduling with Flight Schedule Pro. Login to reserve the aircraft you want, and we’ll have it ready to fly when you arrive at TPF or PCM. If it’s more convenient or you need help, simply call the desk.


Atlas Aviation is both a Cessna Pilot Center and a Cirrus Training Center, offering individual instruction tailored to meet your needs and featuring the state-of-the-art, internet-based Cessna and Cirrus training program. We also teach convenient ground schools to help pilots learn the academic side of flying.
