Each student enrolled in our flight program has the opportunity to embark on their first flight lesson in a small aircraft at no charge to the student. During the lesson, the student does most of the taxiing and flying, allowing them to apply the skills they learned on PC simulators in a real aircraft.
Family and friends are welcome to participate in the experience as well and can ride along with their loved one as space is available. The entire flight experience is video recorded, so all involved can relive the excitement again and again!
Once they have completed the basic and advanced ground and simulator courses, students are well ahead of the curve with regard to flight knowledge, procedures, flight skills, and aircraft performance. Having demonstrated the necessary determination and commitment, students are eligible to begin actual career flight training and to apply for financial aid to help reduce the costs.
GKWFA offers professional aviation training for the Private Pilot Certificate, Instrument Rating, Commercial Pilot Certificate, and Certified Flight Instructor Certificate. Students graduating from our program will be qualified to offer professional flight training and will be better able to support themselves as they pursue a college degree in preparation for a career as a professional aviator.
Throughout its history, GKWFA has taken dozens of aviation career field trips to local airports and businesses. Students have explored careers in Aviation Flight, Aviation Management, the Coast Guard, Aviation Maintenance, Air Traffic Control, Aircraft Production, Aerospace Engineering, and many others. GKWFA seeks to bridge the gap between the “real world” and the education world by offering engaging field trips and meaningful community partnerships.
