Private Pilot Ground School offered at WACO Whether you are young or old, this is a great time to consider general aviation. With new medical reforms for pilots, and a shortage of future pilots, all ages should consider accomplishing this dream. Perhaps you have always wanted to fly, but you don’t know where to begin. The dream of obtaining your pilot license is possible. Begin your flight journey at WACO—practically in your own backyard! WACO offers Flight Ground School; so, if you just can’t get your head out of the clouds, come and begin your journey with us. A new session of ground school will begin April 6th and be taught on Tuesday and Thursday nights at WACO Air Museum from 6:00- 8:30 p.m. for 11 consecutive sessions. Pete Demers, instructor for the ground school, brings a wealth of experience in aviation education that spans the last 15 years. Pete has over 4000 flight hours as a flight instructor, has managed an FAA approved Part 141 Flight School as chief flight instructor, served as pilot and company flight instructor for a part 135 charter operator in the Piper Navajo/Chieftain, and was selected as the FAA’s Flight Instructor of the Year for the Southern Region in 2013. His teaching style is much appreciated by his students. Pete is currently employed by PSA Airlines.
