2019 Maryland Wing Cadet Flight Academy Program
This is the 29th year for the Robert Ayres Memorial Flight Academy and it’s time to start the application process for the class of 2019. However, this year will be slightly different in the fact that our school has been picked up to be part of the National Flight Academy Program. Applicants should review all the following details and comply with all requirements in order to be considered for selection.
- Each cadet selected (8 will be selected) to participate, will receive up to fifteen hours of primary flight instruction and the complete private pilot ground school. At the completion of the course, the FAA private pilot computerized exam will be administered by a local computerized exam facility to those who show a minimum level of competency to be successful on the test.
- The ground school weekends and the flight school will be held at the Hagerstown Composite Squadron building with flying conducted at the Washington County Airport, Richard A. Henson Field. More information will be provided to those selected for the program.
- The FAA private pilot ground school will be held over the course of two weekends (May 24-26 and June 14-16 2019). Each weekend will start at 1800 hours on Friday evening and will run until approximately 1700 hours Sunday. The remaining ground school topics and the flying program will start at 1800 hours on Friday July 5, 2019, and will run until approximately 1600 hours on Sunday July 14, 2019. Sufficient time is allowed to complete the program in the event of inclement weather. The FAA private pilot written exam will be scheduled for the morning of Sunday July 14, 2019. The graduation will be held on the afternoon of Sunday July 14th. More information will be provided to those who are selected to the program. To be selected to the school, applicants must be able to commit to all dates.
