Student Testimonials



“I moved from the Cabin to the Cockpit with Wayman. After years of working as a flight attendant I knew the lifestyle and decided I could do it. When I arrived in the United States Wayman Aviation helped me find housing, a great instructor, and my career. They have a great facility, wonderful maintenance, and supportive staff that cares.”



“Working with Wayman as a flight instructor helped me reach the necessary hours for Airline Transport Pilot (ATP). The professionalism of this academy prepared me for the airlines, but it was still a lot of fun. We taught students from around the world, with a big well maintained fleet. Those first 1,500 hours set the stage for my career as a professional pilot”


Juan Jose

“The instructors and management at Wayman took a personal interest in my success. Thanks to the obtaining the FAA License at Wayman, I obtained my first job in aviation as a co-pilot for a fleet of executive airplanes. After experience I was able to become a Boeing 757 Pilot and the Safety Manager of my current airline.”



“Through Miami-Dade College, I had my first flight with Wayman Aviation Academy. I earned my Private, Instrument, and Commercial certificates at Miami Opa Locka Airport. They are very involved with the community and the Greater Miami Aviation Association. Their partnership with Republic Airlines brought me my first airline job and now I am flying with Spirit Airlines.”
