UW-Green Bay offers course for aspiring pilots
The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is once again partnering with Space Education Initiatives and Tailwind Flight Center to offer the course “Aviation and Aerodynamics for Private and Sport Pilots.”
The non-credit course, open to the general public, is designed to help students understand the aerodynamic principles and physics of powered flight as well as to evaluate the exciting field of aviation as a career or hobby.
The course prepares students for the Federal Aviation Administration’s private pilot or sport pilot written exam. Upon completion of the eight-week course, students will receive an endorsement to take the FAA Private Pilot or Sport Pilot Knowledge Test. There is no required prerequisite for this course.
Students will meet each Tuesday from 7-9 p.m., October 5 through November 23, at Tailwind Flight Center at Austin Straubel Airport in Green Bay. Enrollment is limited to 20 students.
The registration fee is $300 for private pilot and $300 for sport pilot. The registration fee includes a complete kit of books and supplies. The course fee does not include the fee for taking the FAA Knowledge Test. Students must specify their choice for private or sport pilot track upon registration, and will receive the appropriate kit the first night of class.
