Accreditation Culminates Five Years Of Aviation Education
The FAA has granted Part 141 certification to Airwold Aviation Services, making it the only public Part 141 certified flight school in the Upstate. The school has locations at the Greenville Downtown and Spartanburg Downtown Airports. “The accreditation recognizes the excellence of Airwolf’s training program and the quality of graduates they produce” said Adam Lockamy, Assistant Chief Flight Instructor of the school.
The school received the accreditation after 5 years of success in aviation education, including a 93% pass rate, which is well above the national average. "The FAA regularly overviews the curriculum and training to ensure students receive the best education possible” said Director of Operations and Founder of the school, Michele Rash.
“By earning this certification, the students becoming pilots through Airwolf Aviation’s program will be prepared to excel in their chosen aviation career path,” said Chief Flight Instructor, Cynthia Hollman.
Through this certification students are eligible to receive financing and may utilize veteran’s benefits for career training. This can save students thousands of dollars in their training as compared to training at a non-approved flight school.
