Tradewind Aviation Group is based at Coastal Carolina Regional Airport in New Bern North Carolina/USA.
Tradewind Aviation International is a flight school with a long tradition. We have six instructors on staff and a fleet of nine aircraft. Together with repute European partner flight schools we are an attractive destination for international pilots who want to ad FAA certificates and ratings or just like to build flight experience.

...is over. It was a great success for all of us, including the 12 participating kids.
We did flight training in New Bern, flew along the Outer Banks to First Flight, visited the Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach (42VA), had a great time at the beach in Ocracoke, and on the last day of the camp we had our traditional bombing contest. The winner was a girl, and girls participated to 50% of the fun campers this year! With the opportunity for the kids to be a pilot in an airplane we have set the foundation for future aviation careers.
Here is a group picture in front of a (still flyable) British Hawker Hurricane WW2 fighter in Virginia Beach.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the success of this week's events.
We all look forward having our Fun Camp again in June 2014.
All classes of Aviation Flight Physicals are available at Tradewind Aviation
