About Us

In 2015, the owners and pilots of Atlanta Air Charter founded Atlanta Air Academy in Kennesaw, GA. Our passion for aviation and promoting careers for professional pilots inspired us to form this flight academy to train, mentor, and provide a pathway for providing desperately needed, well-trained pilots for the airline and charter industry.


Atlanta Air Charter currently owns and operates a fleet of four King Air 200 aircraft and an Astra Jet to meet the needs of the growing on-demand private aircraft charter market. The company is owned and operated by a tight group of airline and military pilots dedicated to safety and professional pilot standards. We have a continuous need for qualified pilots in our charter department and will help any deserving candidate reach their goals. For more information, contact us.
