Fort Lauderdale

CTI PFT Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport

Our Fort Lauderdale Flight Training Academy is located at the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE), on the southeast coast of Florida.  FXE is located eight miles northwest of Ft. Lauderdale International Airport, one of the busiest general aviation airports in the country and brimming with opportunity.   The pre-flight facilities are state-of-the-art, with computer generated weather services and flight planning.  CTI Professional Flight Training also operates a private, on-site FAA computerized examination facility.    

This location offers great flying weather, several options for housing, nearby beaches, and a vibrant nightlife.  Fort Lauderdale is a short drive from Miami and Palm Beach, and  Port Everglades, in nearby Hollywood, is among the world's busiest cruise terminals.  Fort Lauderdale's exceptional weather makes it a great place to live and an even better place to fly.
