Bob Hoover Academy


Using the Power of Flight to Change Lives

The Big Idea

We believe in BIG investment in individuals. At the Bob Hoover Academy (“BHA”), we train our students to fly in our airplane, in our full-motion flight simulator, and in the classroom with a world-class aviation curriculum. Our partnership with the Monterey County Office of Education (MCOE) is growing, adapting and moving to a bigger campus - on the Salinas Airport! We can now provide this personal support to more than double the students - now up to 40! We rely on your donation to offer the very best level of excitement, challenge and education. This investment in BHA is an investment in our community. Our students learn with international aviation superstars, meet astronauts, and foster bonds with dedicated local pilots who volunteer their time and expertise. And new this year: an introduction to aviation maintenance program - fixing up our *new* project Cessna 172!

“The Bob Hoover Academy changed my life forever. Prior to attending BHA I had no knowledge of flying. In my 2 years at BHA I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge in class, on field trips, and on the air field. The BHA helped guide me into being the best form of myself possible on the ground and in the air.”
