The Experimental Aircraft Association will expand its Sport Pilot Academy in 2017, holding three sessions at its headquarters in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Launched in 2016, the academy is a three-week, immersive training program that features a dedicated fleet of Cessna Skycatchers and certificated flight instructors.
The $9,999 fee includes all ground and flight training, housing on the EAA grounds, and meals. “A variety of activities are included that make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience: cockpit climbs in the museum, guest speakers, flight experiences in EAA aircraft, and even getting your picture taken on one of Wittman Regional Airport’s ‘dots,’” EAA said.
After registering for the sport academy, participants must complete an online ground school that is included in the total cost, and take and pass the FAA knowledge test, before they arrive at Oshkosh.
