Waiting List

Due to extraordinary interest in flight training and club membership, our waiting list for initial flight training and checkouts has grown to more than fifty people, and our waiting period to initiate training is now several months.

We continue to welcome new members and hope you will consider the club for your flight training or as a flying member, but in fairness we want you to know that you should plan ahead and reach out to the club sooner rather than later.

We are working to expand our training capacity, but we will do so without compromising the safety and quality of our instruction, and so this will take time.

Ground School Schedule

All are welcome to take our ground schools!

2021 Winter/Spring Private Pilot Ground School

2021 Winter/Spring Instrument Rating Ground School
January 25 through April 12 (Mondays 7-10pm)

2021 Fall Commercial Pilot Ground School

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wings of Carolina ground schools will be conducted via ZOOM through the Private Pilot class starting on May 17, 2021.

Starting in the fall, it is our intention that both the Private Pilot and the Commercial ground schools will be taught in person in the classroom at the Club facility at the airport. With regard to COVID precautions, we will be adhering to the current State guidance for social distancing and personal protection as they may be in effect at that time. We trust that most all participants in the fall classes will have been vaccinated by that time. (Updated information regarding the fall classes will be posted here in early August -especially if we may be doing the class on Zoom after all.)

Pilots interested in the Private Pilot Ground School starting on May 17, 2021 (meeting on Monday and Thursday evenings) may attend the first two classes free of charge using the Zoom invitations posted here in May and on the Private Pilot page of this website. If you have any questions for the Club staff or to express your interest, please contact the Flying Club at 919-776-2003, option 3, or email the ground instructor at (groundschool@wingsofcarolina.org).
