Astounding founder of Delta Qualiflight in 1969, Khaled’s level of training and certifications were unsurpassed. After fifty plus years in aviation and graduating over 8,000 pilots from all over the world, Khaled lost his fight to Covid in November 2020. He was one of the most respected instructor pilots and FAA Designated Pilot Examiners in the aviation industry, and held the utmost dedication, integrity, and care for every one of his students and employees. Khaled set the precedent in making Delta Qualiflight one of the most top-notch flight academies in the nation. He was a pioneer in establishing a successful business through his hard work, compassion, and love for aviation. His legacy continues to flourish through the future of Delta Qualiflight and his son, Chadd.

A Dallas-Fort Worth Pilot School

Delta Qualiflight Academy of Flying

Few of us experience the exhilaration of actually flying an airplane. It takes training, knowledge and skill to master the art and science of flight. Those who do have a mystique about them that the rest of us can only admire. And those who attain the status of professional pilot have opportunities available to them that the rest of us can only dream about.

There are many steps to take toward becoming a professional pilot. At Delta Qualiflight you can qualify for any or all of the certifications you will need: Private Pilot's License, Commercial Pilot's License, Instrument Rating, Multi-Engine Rating, Flight Instructor, Instrument Flight Instructor, Multi-Engine Flight Instructor, and Airline Transport Pilot. To successfully complete and be certified in ALL of the courses in preparation for becoming a Career/Professional Pilot requires 4 to 6 months on average, depending on your prior preparation, dedication, skill level, and aptitude.

At Delta Qualiflight, your education and training is structured so that your Career/Professional Pilot program can be completed in significantly less time, and at much less cost than similar programs in schools in many other countries. In our intensive programs, you get the flying hours you need over a shorter period of time. You’ll learn more and learn it more quickly!

Delta Qualiflight was founded in 1969 by K. M. Miloud and is located in Fort Worth, Texas.

Ground Instructor

Instrument Rating

An FAA Instrument Rating gives the holder of a Private or Commercial License the additional privilege of flying IFR (Instrument Flight Rules). An instrument rated pilot can fly purely by reference to the flight instruments in situations where navigation by line of sight is not possible. This means you can fly in the clouds as an instrument rated pilot, giving you a great deal more freedom to fly in conditions that would keep a non-instrument pilot on the ground.

Flight Instructor

Flight Instructor

An FAA Flight Instructor License allows the holder to teach pilots how to fly. As an instructor you pass on what you have learned to others and gain valuable experience in the process. To become a flight instructor you must first have a Commercial Pilot License and as a commercial pilot you will already know the theoretical and practical aspects of flying airplanes, so the focus of instructor training is developing the ability to effectively teach others. Through teaching you can attain a much deeper knowledge of the material and so the more your students learn the more you will learn as well. Certified Flight Instructor courses for Airplane Single Engine Land, Multi-Engine land and Instrument are offered.

Airline Transport Pilot

Airline Transport Pilot

An FAA Airline Transport Pilot Certificate (ATP) is the highest of all licenses and the start of reaching the apex of the profession. It allows the holder to act as Pilot in Command of an airline aircraft, meaning you can be the Captain with your ATP License. Both single engine and multi-engine ATP courses are offered.

Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will always long to return.
