Oakland, Calif.-based Sierra Academy of Aeronautics, formerly an independently owned and operated fixed-wing, helicopter and maintenance training school that closed its doors in December, has reopened on a much smaller scale by its new owners. KS Aviation, a flight school in Stockton, Calif., acquired 38-year-old Sierra Academy and reopened the school for fixed-wing ab initio through ATP training. Eliminated are the school’s former helicopter, maintenance and dispatcher courses.
