Archived: Connecticut Flight Academy, LLC: A proven and respected leader in the airline pilot training industry

Connecticut Flight Academy, LLC

20 Lindbergh Drive, CT Hartford, CT 06, US

Connecticut Flight Academy (CFA) is a proven and respected leader in the airline pilot training industry. CFA trains people to become licensed pilots. CFA has $8M a year in sales, 4 locations, a 30% profit, and several government requests to open additional flight training academies. With capital, or access to financing, we can tweak the business model and take profits from $2M/year now to $26M+/year in 24 months and to $50M/year by 36 months.

There is a demographically-driven global pilot shortage the will persist for the next 15 years, The industry is short 40,000 pilots today, and the industry only trains 13,000 pilots per year. 100% of CFA trainees who seek employment have job offers of $100-140k/year to start. Training takes about 12 months and does not require a degree. Interested students are everywhere.

The problem is very simple: there is almost no student financing available for pilot training.

CFA is seeking funding to change its business model to a CFA-financed, just-sign-here-and we will train you business model. We can instantly raise prices, double enrollments, place the students for a fee, and create an interest revenue stream multiplying profits the first year by 600%. During the same time we can expand our facilities and fleet allowing us to double/triple enrollment in years two/three for a total increase of profits of 2500%+ to $50M+/year in profits using very conservative assumptions.

CFA has a mature management team in place, deep industry connections with dozens of airlines who have already agreed to participate in this new training/hiring model, an experienced sales team, an industry-recognized top notch pilot training program, and is currently a very healthy business.

With expanded capital or financing to offer student financing, we can multiply profits. This business is only missing the capital required to expand. Everything else is ready to go right now.
