I paid a deposit to this academy and it was not returned, they just cancels visa of international students to keep their deposits. Be careful with this academy. They are not so professionals management staff barely speak some words in English, hope you don't experience something's like that.,

Employee(s) worked with: Virgil Kennedy

Reason for visit: Flight Training

I recommend this flight school: No

Pros

Good training at Austin International airport

Planes are in good condition for basic training

Cons

Unreliable and unprofessional flight instructor

Outdated information

Most expensive flight school in Austin



My Review of Austin Academy of Aviation:
Expensive / Unreliable / Unprofessional
This is the most expensive flight school in Austin. Virgil Kennedy is the 74 year old owner and lead flight instructor. He is consistently unreliable due to his various medical issues, and cancels flights lessons at the last minute. Unreliability is compounded by the fact Virgil manages the daily schedule, phone calls, administration, all of which occurs during scheduled flight training. Very unprofessional.
He does not respect anyone elses time but his own.
Althought highly experienced, his best years are behind him and knowledge is sadly outdated. Don’t expect Virgil to teach intricacies of GPS navigation except to demonstrate the one single button he knows to push. Additionally don’t expect autopilot instruction since usage on one aircraft causes steep continuous left turns. Other instruments are defective and he claims they are too expensive to repair, so be aware of what you are getting into.

Cons


My Review of Berichi Aviation:
I gave it a five star rating across the board because it was very clean facility the instructors Charlie and Dan are amicable very well studied in all points of the business, training and professionalism. Aircraft in perfect condition if not mint condition for a flight school/rental aspect.

Another reason out of many reasons why I rated it with 5 stars is due to the customer service, it was just great.
