  • Brother in law had a great time doing this from Groupon that my sister got him. There was plenty of room to chill and watch from down below. Nice staff - now my husband wants to go!  more »
  • My, oh my, was that amazing!! The perfect day to fly - the Gulf of Mexico looked like glass, so gorgeous! I was the passenger and my husband flew the plane, an "experience" gift from our daughter. Our...  more »
  • Back in Feb I purchased a Groupon for the Discovery flight not really knowing what to expect. I know I looked up Tampa Bay Aviation and saw the good reviews but we all know that sometimes even with go...  more »

  • I have been very happy with Tampa Bay Aviation. I used them for two add-on ratings (Commercial AMEL and MEI) and not only were their instructors very professional, but their airplanes (and helicopters) were kept in great condition, their front desk staff were very friendly, and their prices were super competitive. I will surely be using TBA for any future airplane and helicopter training and recommending my friends to fly there.
  • I've never been to a better flight school! Really high quality instruction and nice, dependable airplanes. They have a pretty large fleet so there's always an airplane available. Great customer service, any time I need something from them they bend over backwards to help me. They also offer pretty good deals on sightseeing tours and discovery flights, etc. I bought one for my brother last year for his birthday and he LOVED it. They're also located in an awesome location close to KPIE, KTPA, and obviously the beach. You'll love TBA!
  • I took a trip with a friend out of Albert Whitted Airport in Saint Petersburg. It was a jaw dropping experience. It's a trip I'll remember forever. The opportunity to see all the wildlife that surrounds you is just incredible. Our pilot, Presley, was fantastic. Definitely recommend this to a friend.
  • Very much appreciated TBA for the single-engine introductory flight! Scheduling was quick and easy. A word of advice is to schedule ASAP. Time slots get swiped real quick! Many thanks to TBA and my FI, Lindsay for the awesome experience! Definitely planning tocome back to work on obtaining a PPL.
  • We are a dual military family. My wife PCS'd to Tampa last year. My assignment was out of state. I just retired to keep the family close. I planned to check out in the Cirrus and get my CFI with TBA. My wife bought me a gift certificate last year to start my training after retirement.. It had expired so I called TBA to see if they would apply it to a block of training, or if I could make up any price difference since it expired. They would not honor it in any way. The Flight Manager told me the accountant would not allow it. Sound familiar? No flexibility and flight ops secondary to the support mission. That's why most military aviators leave the military and go civilian. If you are making that transition, or even just want to fly for the shear joy of flying, find a different FBO, one that focuses on flying, not taking your money.
