TRAINING SCHOLARS. MAKING DISCIPLES. GRADUATING LEADERS
THE NEXT GENERATION OF PILOTS
Traders Point is proud to partner with LIFT Academy and Republic Airways to offer our students the unique opportunity to explore a career in aviation while still in high school. Students who enroll in the LIFT program at TPCS have the ability to earn their private pilot's license prior to graduation with a preferred pathway to employment at Republic. Regardless of whether a student is interested in becoming a private pilot, a commercial pilot, or an airline maintenance technician, the LIFT Academy program at TPCS offers an accelerated pathway to a successful career in aviation.
The Leadership In Flight Training (LIFT) Academy was born out of a desire to transform the standard pilot training model into one that is more widely attainable and attractive. By offering tuition that is more affordable than other pilot training programs, as well as a direct classroom-to-cockpit opportunity, LIFT has thrown the hangar doors wide open to a world of possibilities for men and women who thought becoming a pilot was simply not within reach.
This innovative, cutting-edge program provides LIFT students with the skills they need to succeed, along with an option for a guaranteed pathway to a career as a pilot with Republic Airways.
A CLASSROOM TO COCKPIT EXPERIENCE
Students progress through an engaging aerospace and aviation curriculum provided by the AOPA. Classes take place on the second floor of our Upper School in the LIFT Academy Exploration Center, complete with a state-of-the-art flight simulator.
Regular onsite visits take place to LIFT Academy in addition to local airports where students complete their flight hours.
