We’ve all heard of flight schools, but few are as well-known as AirTran.
The company offers online flight education to over 200,000 people, from the top schools to the bottom.
But for the first time, the company is announcing a partnership with the National Geographic Channel to give people access to the best online flight instruction.
With its first online flight class in January, AirTron has set itself up as a major rival to traditional schools and is poised to become one of the biggest online flight companies.
We spoke with AirTravon CEO Robert Kynge about the partnership with National Geographic and how it’s changing the way people learn about flying.
What makes AirTropan so special is that it is completely digital.
It’s a virtual classroom, and the teachers can be anyone.
It is not an online program.
AirTron is also offering free online flight training to students from all over the world, for $99 per month, for a year.
“What makes this program so amazing is that we have the students in our network, we have our own network of instructors and we have a network of students,” said Kyn, who has been a flight instructor for 30 years.
The online flight lessons offered by AirTram will be similar to what you’ll find in traditional flight schools.
The content includes everything from classroom instruction, flight lessons and even a virtual reality tour.
It also includes a full range of aviation skills.
There are a couple of other differences, though.
The lessons are not a one-size-fits-all format, but rather, each lesson is tailored to a specific type of student.
They’re designed to be taught by people who are not aviation experts, Kyn explained.
“The focus is on what you want to know,” he said.
One of the big differences between the AirTrans you’re used to from traditional flight school is that you’re actually flying for free.
Students can pay a fee to take a course, but the course will be held online and you’ll be able to check in to see when it ends.
