Where Possibilities Take Flight


Albert Whitted Airport is a gem of the beautiful and unique downtown waterfront experience of St. Petersburg, Florida. With 100,000 flights each year, it is integral to St. Pete’s tourism and economy, but it’s so much more than an airport. AWA enables Discovery, Opportunity, Safety, Mobility, and Preservation for everyone in the St. Petersburg community.

OPPORTUNITY

WHERE FUTURE PILOTS TAKE FLIGHT
The dream of becoming a pilot represents the pursuit of freedom, a rewarding career, adventure, and limitless possibilities. It embodies the desire to soar through the skies; command a powerful aircraft; and experience the world from a unique and exhilarating perspective.

Albert Whitted Airport has helped thousands of people fulfill their dream of becoming a pilot. The instructors at St. Pete Air, as well as several independent flight instructors at AWA, are dedicated to ensuring those with a passion for flight can earn their license; and flight training scholarships from the Friends of Albert Whitted Airport enable young people from under-represented communities to realize this dream.
