About Us

Birmingham Flight Center is the ultimate flight training and aircraft service provider at Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport. BFC is proud to be an FAA approved Part 61 training facility offering the highest degree of professionalism and service to the pursuit of your aviation goals, from start to finish.



BFC is a locally owned and family operated flight school, coming from humble beginnings. We started out in 2005 as a good idea, a small notebook, and a single airplane. Since then, we have grown into one of the leading flight training establishments in the state of Alabama.

Our first airplane has turned into a diverse fleet of training aircraft and a staff of top notch instructors. To date we have trained thousands of pilots, all of whom have been held to high standards of quality and safety.

  1. Integrity.

  2. Being attentive to our students' needs.

  3. Safety and professionalism in all that we do.

  4. Make the sky safer for EVERYONE

Each day, we strive to exemplify what these principles represent in all facets of our business. They have been with the company since its formation and serve as the foundation for future growth.

These principles apply in all areas, such as guiding a student who is challenged by a difficult topic, all the way through complex mechanical tasks encountered by the maintenance department. No matter the task, no matter the size. Who we are remains the same.

We have found carrying ourselves in this manner fosters a culture for positive student growth, satisfied clientele, and an overall strong learning environment. Let us show you what it means to us, and how we can put it to work for you.
