Application Process

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 between 30-60 days prior to your desired start date. 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 I-2o Processing Fee. For international students, once the Registration and I-20 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.

If you need additional information, submit our request info form or email us.
