About ACOM Aviation Academy

ACOM Aviation Academy, LLC. was founded to provide flight training at an affordable cost.  Dave Stock, owner of ACOM Aviation Academy, grew up in a poor family and didn't have the money for flight training.  Thanks to the military providing some of the best training and experience in the world, Dave reached his aviation goals and now wants to help others reach theirs.   

With over 20 years of military experience, Dave Stock attained Master Aviator status, holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the Nation's most prestigious aviation university, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and is a Federal Aviation Administration Certified Flight Instructor in airplanes and helicopters.

With the best military and civilian education and training, combat proven flight experience, and years of experience as a Test Pilot, Aviation Safety Officer, and Instructor Pilot, ACOM Aviation Academy knows how to turn aviation dreams into reality! 


Dothan Regional Airport (KDHN) 

While there are many good airports around the wiregrass, ACOM Aviation Academy LLC has recently chosen Dothan Regional Airport (KDHN) to be our home.  KDHN offers the best support with full service refuel and expert ground handling by Aero-One Aviation's fully trained and experienced ground crews, the superior safety and readiness of the Dothan Airport Fire and Police Departments, and spacious offices that overlook runway 14/32.  Learning to fly at a Class D airport will also teach you how to communicate with air traffic controllers from the beginning while helping you meet some of your FAA training requirements.


You shouldn't have to pay an arm and a leg to fulfill a dream.  Besides cost, aviation can seem very complicated and most people don't know where to start.  ACOM Aviation Academy can help you build a plan to affordably meet your goals.  We provide training from private pilot through flight instructor and are excited to make new friends and support aviation in the Wiregrass.


ACOM Aviation Academy has reliable aircraft to fit your mission.  The Cessna 182 and the Piper Cherokee are some of the most common and proven aircraft in service and we have them ready for training.  We also have some of the most experienced aviation maintenance technicians in the area making sure our airplanes are safe and reliable.

Drone Pilot Ground School

ACOM Aviation Academy has successfully trained numerous wiregrass area residents on the FAA rules and regulations required to safely operate your drone.  Our program will give you the tools you need to pass the aviation knowledge exam and become a commercial drone pilot.  Even if you don't want to fly your drone for hire, our course will help you understand the airspace around you so you can make sure to avoid violating any FAA rules!
