We are excited that you are ready to join HAA and start on the path toward a career as a professional pilot.
In order to apply to HAA for admissions into either our airplane or helicopter training program, please look at the available start dates below and the corresponding application periods. This will tell you when to submit your application for your desired start date.
HAA will notify all applicants of acceptance or denial within two weeks of the submission of all required application materials. The sooner you submit your application, the sooner you will be notified. Once accepted, students will need to pay the $200 Registration Fee to secure their spot. International students will also need to pay a $300 International Application Processing Fee. For international students, once the registration and application processing fees are paid and your TSA training request has initial approval, HAA will issue your visa paperwork.
Acceptance into HAA’s program is at the discretion of the school’s admissions team. Acceptance may be revoked prior to enrollment if the admissions team learns new information that they feel would make the applicant unsuccessful in the program. The HAA registration fee will be returned in this case.
