The MDC School of Aviation has a partnership agreement with the local flight school Wayman Aviation and Pan Am International Flight Academy. In accordance with FAA regulations, the school operates under Part 141 certification and approval.
Since the School of Aviation does not have its own aircraft fleet, our community partnerships provide the practical application of knowledge gained in the classroom. A minimum of 35 hours is required to obtain a private pilot's license, but most aspiring pilots can accrue as much as 60 plus hours of flight time before they pass their FAA checkride, or final exam.
At MDC's School of Aviation, students are able to use our more cost effective simulators to supplement their logged flight time, and in the process, obtain a professional aviation degree.
