Pinch Hitter Course
WACO Air Museum, Troy OH
Weekly from September 23-October 28th
The Pinch Hitter Class is designed for a non-pilot, who frequently sits as a passenger in the
right seat of a general aviation airplane, and wants to learn about what the pilot is
doing and about emergency situations. It is a class where learning about aviation is an
enjoyable experience. The class is not designed around a specific model airplane but gives
the participant a good understanding what piloting is about and how to be helpful as the
“unofficial co-pilot” when sitting in the right seat. The Pinch Hitter Class lasts 6 weeks, meets
once a week, for 2 hours.
