About Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale is on the southeastern coast of Florida. The city and the surrounding area are famous for their beaches and miles of boating canals. Port Everglades, in nearby Hollywood, is among the world's busiest cruise terminals. Fort Lauderdale is a short drive from Miami and Palm Beach. Its exceptional weather makes it a great place to live and an even better place to fly.
About Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport
Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) is located eight miles northwest of Ft. Lauderdale International Airport, and five miles west of the Atlantic Coastline on Commercial Boulevard. It is conveniently located within Florida’s premier commercial corridor (between Miami and West Palm Beach), and is the fifth busiest general aviation airport in the country. For this reason, Executive provides an excellent learning environment for those seeking a career in aviation. The student is trained to develop the radio and navigational skills needed to maneuver within intensely controlled airspace. This is considered an extremely valuable training element and great preparation for actual commercial conditions. The field is also equipped for instrument approaches (ILS/NDB), and is in close proximity to satellite training facilities that offer a wide variety of instrument approach procedures (e.g.: Pompano Localizer; Palm Beach; VOR/NDB/ILS/Localizer). Furthermore, CTI Professional Flight Training has access to the expansive, designated practice area to the northwest of the airport for intensive student training.
