CTI PFT Millington-Memphis Airport

Our Memphis academy operates out of a newly renovated 20,000 square foot hangar at the Millington-Memphis Airport.  Our historic building once housed the Memphis Belle and now has over ten private briefing rooms, as well as state-of-the-art pre-flight facilities , with computer generated weather services and flight planning.  The academy is just 15 minutes north of the historic downtown area, known for its rich music heritage, great barbecue, world-famous Bass Pro Shop, and sports activities.

The Millington-Memphis Airport (NQA) boasts an 8,000 foot by 200 foot runway and nearly 24 hour control tower operations.  Our students are trained to develop the radio and navigational skills needed to maneuver within controlled airspace, without the pressure of dense traffic that is common at larger airports.
