USAF Aero Clubs Announce ‘Start Flying’ Campaign

USAF Aero Clubs Announce Campaign To Attract New Aviators

Air Force Services Agency aero club officials are inviting people to take advantage of the ‘Start Flying’ campaign beginning Nov. 1 and ending April 30.

The campaign is offered to active-duty and retired military, Department of Defense civilians and their family members who are interested in earning their private pilot’s certification.

There are 23 participating aero clubs worldwide with skilled instructors, and well-maintained and equipped facilities, officials said.

The pricing is well below most general aviation instruction, officials said. Students may even qualify to use Veteran’s Administration education benefits to minimize the cost for advanced ratings.

“This is a great opportunity for all (DOD-related people) to come see the benefits that the aero clubs provide for them,” said Eric Treland, Air Force aero club program manager.

“Since this is the 100th year of aviation, now is a great time to come to an aero club, take an introductory flight and start working toward your dream of becoming a pilot,” Treland said.
