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 are providing flight training both under 14 CFR Part 61 and Part 141. Tradewind is accepting VA benefits for the Montgomery Bill and for the Post 9-11 GI Bill. The following courses under Part 141 have been approved by the FAA, NC SAA, and the VA:

  • Instrument (with Commercial)
  • Commercial
  • Multiengine ad-on
  • CFI
  • CFII
  • MEI

The course for the Private Pilot Certificate has been approved by the FAA for training under Part 141. However, the VA in general does not finance this course.

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 build flight time experience, or to obtain their FAA licenses.

Tradewind Aviation Maintenance performs quality aircraft maintenance for the flight school fleet, for private aircraft owners, for commercial and charter operators and for government agencies.

Tradewind is among a few flight schools in Eastern North Carolina that have the ability to provide this attractive type of training on all levels.

Our multiengine aircraft, the Seminole, has gotten a Garmin 430 with WAAS, coupled with the HSI. It is now even a better IFR trainer and cross country aircraft, capable to fly GPS approaches under IFR conditions.
