Stateside Home Bases: Carlsbad & Tampa

Home to TRU's business aviation pilot training programs, our Tampa and Carlsbad training centers were built upon predecessor companies including ProFlight® and Opinicus. ProFlight was founded in Carlsbad, California in 1988 by professional pilot instructors who saw a need for an approach to pilot training that went beyond traditional methods. In 2014, Textron acquired ProFlight and began expanding its pilot training courses to create the current TRU Simulation + Training. Today, you can experience highly individualized, cutting edge pilot training on both coasts. Our Part 142 certified satellite center is located just minutes from Tampa, Florida.
