Ocean Aviation Flight Academy is located at the Ocean City Municipal Airport. Located in the Mid Atlantic region of the United States, we are centrally located just two- and one-half hour drive from Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC. We are just four hours from New York City and just two hours from Norfolk, Virginia.
The Delmarva, as our region is often referred to, is a peninsula that includes parts of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, hence DelMarVa. The area is geographically removed from the major metropolitan areas of the northeast and mid-Atlantic. Thus, air traffic around our area is light. The terrain is mostly farmland, distinctly flat and bordered to the north by the Delaware Bay and to the East by the Atlantic Ocean. If we tried, we could not possibly have designed a finer region to provide primary and advanced flight training. Air traffic is light most times of the year, weather is much milder than the northeast United States but not nearly as hot as that of Florida and the southern states. The airspace above and within fifty miles of our school is almost exclusively class E and G, perfect for flight training. For initial flight training and maneuvers, our students tell us that the comfort level of flying over the Delmarva with its light traffic, friendly terrain and clear mild weather is beyond comparison. Yet, for advancing students it is an easy cross-country flight to more complex areas such as Atlantic City, Baltimore and Philadelphia. And our more advanced students even fly into the most regulated airspace in the country, the Washington Special Flight Rules Area.
Ocean Aviation is the largest year around operator by far at the Ocean City Municipal Airport (OXB). Our flight academy occupies two buildings along the main taxiways. The main terminal building houses a large conference area, meeting room and very comfortable large pilot lounge that is used by our students for study and lounging. Our pilot shop is located in the terminal lobby. Our ten thousand square foot office and aircraft maintenance facility adjacent to the terminal contains dispatch, classrooms and our school offices. If your local to our area, please come on in to see all we have to offer. If you are thinking of enrolling and are not local to our area, please take a few minutes to enjoy our virtual tour of our airport and our facilities. I think you will be impressed with all we have to offer.
