The Academy is considered to be one of the best international flight schools and is the unique component of the national education in Ukraine.
Its history began more than 50 years ago. The 60th Military Aviation Flight College was created in Kirovograd in 1951 and prepared the flight crews for Soviet Army Military Air Forces till1960. In connection with the decision of Soviet Government concerning USSR Military Forces reduction, the College was transformed into the Kirovograd Civil Aviation High School. Kirovograd Civil Aviation High Flight School carried out training of aviation personnel for Aeroflot and aviation companies all around the world from 1960 till 1978.
In the 60th the new aviation hardware, jet and turboprop aircraft were introduced into Civil Aviation. This fact complicated the process of air traffic and raised the demands to aviation staff. It became necessary to create the civil aviation higher education establishments. Beginning from 1978, on the base of Kirovograd Civil Aviation High Flight School the Kirovograd Civil Aviation High Flight College started functioning. The technical and training base and aviation staff high education programs were improved. In 1993 by the order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine the College got the status of the State Flight Academy of Ukraine. So, the high quality of training at the Academy is based on the great experience and many years' traditions.
During the period of its operation Academy prepared more than 110 thousand of aviation personnel, including more than 4 thousand specialists for 66 countries of the world. We are proud that our graduates work on all main lands of the Earth (except Australia) and hold different posts. Among them are pilots, air traffic controllers, heads of the services, flight crews and detachments captains, chiefs of the departments, air companies and flight complexes directors. Besides, our graduates are heads of aviation services in Mongolia, Bulgaria, Moldova and several African countries. For the high quality training of Cuba Republic specialists the Academy was awarded with the Cuban order De la SOLIDARIDAD, and for the great contribution into high-qualified personnel training for Ukrainian aviation it got the silver medal of International Academic rating Golden Fortune.
In 2000 the State Flight Academy joined the UN program TRAINAIR (civil aviation personnel training international program), also it became the member of Innovation Centre of International Educational Programmes INCOS.
The activity of the State Flight Academy of Ukraine is certified by International Aviation Committee (CIS), got the license of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the 4th level of accreditation. At present the Academy provides training on the following specialities: Aircraft Flight operation (commercial pilot for single engine aircraft, commercial pilot for multi engine aircraft), Aircraft Production, Technical Maintenance and Repair (technical diagnostic and non-destructive methods of monitoring, flight engineer), Air Traffic Servicing (air traffic controller, air navigation information and flight planning officer, computer flight servicing officer, emergency servicing and flight safety officer).
The State Flight Academy of Ukraine went through many difficulties of living in the new economic formation and now is the only one flight education establishment in Ukraine and world level centre of 21st century aviation personnel training.
