Is there a flight school on St. Croix or St. Thomas?

I was trying to check on aopa.org but having trouble with the site.

Thanks for the help 🙂

I am not a pilot but did go on an island tour with Captain Al of Air Ventures in Paradise a few weeks ago and he was great. He offers flight instruction packages and has several different planes. Here is a link to his website:

Check with BIA, there are at the airport, Bill is an excellent pilot, retired from American Airlines and has a great flight school.
He has new planes for the school and also can teach in multi and jets!
They are on the old service road when coming from the west side of the airport, easy parking...I would think of no other person or company to teach me to fly.

Call Ace Flight Center - 340-776-4141.

What type of flight school or rating are you looking for?

Thanks for the suggestions.

I'm hoping to finish my private license while I'm here but I would like to continue and get my instrument and commercial after that 🙂

I'd agree about BIA...Bohlke International Airways. It's at the airport on St. Croix and has an excellent flight training program...and GREAT airplanes. Bill Bohlke is the guy you need to talk with and you'll like the program. They got me back in the air after many years and their planes are amazing!

Digging this up from a couple of years ago... it sounds like both BIA and Air Ventures are great, but I wonder if anyone has any new insights on either of them in the past 3 years. Any changes for the better or worse? Would both still be highly recommended?

And for those who have their license... I hear that a couple of hours a week of flight time is the norm, but what about study time? I'm going to be studying for another licensing exam (for work, maybe 10 hours a week of study time), and I wonder if I'll have time to study for this as well, in addition to working full-time. Or should I wait and do one at a time? I've spent most of my life studying my butt off for one thing or another, and I'll be working fewer hours than I do now once I move to STX, but I don't want to get into a plane under-prepared!

Call Eric at Bohlke. He's very good!
