Each of the instructors are experienced field inspectors with many years of hands on responsibilities prior to being accepted as instructors in AMA-230.

AMA-230 Commercial Transportation Branch instructs General Aviation Inspectors (ASI), Principal Operations Inspectors (POI), check pilots, and industry personnel utilizing a variety of delivery mediums from instructor led paperless classrooms, to hands on flight training devices located right here at the academy. The courses subjects range from automation, focusing on the use of FAA record and data programs, to technical training for inspectors, providing them the training necessary to manage air carrier certificates and airmen certifications.
