FAA-approved flight school to open at the Natchitoches Regional Airport (KIER), Louisiana

NATCHITOCHES — A grand opening is set for 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday at the Natchitoches Regional Airport for a new flight school being opened by Flight Academy of New Orleans. 

City and airport officials are excited about the opportunities the flight school will bring to the community.

“According to an economic study done more than four years ago, the Natchitoches Regional Airport brings $13,797,000 of direct and indirect benefit to our city,” Airport Manager Larry Cooper said. “This flight school offers significant opportunities to utilize one of our most important assets and provide growth for Natchitoches aviation.”

The school will be in the hangar formerly occupied by Northwestern State University.
Founded in 2003, FANO will train professionals for all types of pilot jobs, including corporate jets and airlines and for business or personal use.

The school will also offer elective courses using prior learning assessment to students from Northwestern State University.

FANO has an existing flight school campus at the Lakefront Airport in New Orleans.
