Tennessee Flight Training acquires Azure Flight Support’s Flight Training Division

NASHVILLE: Tennessee Flight Training, a leading provider of affordable flight instruction, has announced the purchase of the flight training division of Azure Flight Support, a company that offers aviation services and solutions. The acquisition includes Shelbyville Flight Academy as well as flight training locations in Crossville and Cleveland, TN.

The acquisition will enable Tennessee Flight Training to expand its flight training programs to new markets and to continue producing high-quality pilots for the commercial aviation industry, which is facing a severe pilot shortage due to the retirement of many pilots and the rebound in demand after the pandemic. According to industry experts, there will be a global shortfall of at least 34,000 commercial pilots by 2025, while the demand for commercial airline pilots is expected to increase significantly over the next 10 years.

Chris Erlanson, President of Tennessee Flight Training, said that the acquisition will allow them to work with Azure Flight Support as a long-term strategic partner for Fixed Base Operator (FBO) services and maintenance. “This partnership allows Tennessee Flight Training to expand beyond our current market and to continue providing the aviation industry with top-notch pilots from this region. We couldn’t be any more excited about working with Azure Flight Support with their years of expertise combined and outstanding integrity in their operations,” he said.

Allen Howell of Azure Flight Support said that they are excited about Tennessee Flight Training taking their flight training programs and elevating them to the next level. “Chris and his team are singularly focused on delivering high-quality flight training. As a strategic partner we will work with Tennessee Flight Training at our FBO locations in a support role,” he said.
