Introductory Flights

Project Pilot

Project Pilot, formerly known as BE A PILOT, is a program sponsored by AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilot Association). The program provides comprehensive information and resources for prospective pilots.

The website of Project Pilot has a search engine for flight schools and offers Intro Flight Certificates.

Tradewind is a partner organization of Project Pilot and BE-A-PILOT. Based on this participation Tradewind accepts the enrollment from Project Pilot.

Tradewind also provides its own Introductory Flight program: of 30 minutes for $80 or 1 hour for for $150, all inclusive. No other discounts apply to these rates.

The prospective pilot flies together with an experienced flight instructor, and can taxi, take off and fly and be in control of the airplane during this first flight. The instructor provides fascinating and helpful information about the airplane, basics of flight, communication and landing. It is a great experience for everyone who has interest in aviation. Those first flights often motivate to become a pilot, either for leisure or later as a profession.
