Learn to Fly

Wayman Aviation offers a variety of options for those stretching their wings for the first time, as well as those continuing their flight training. If you are interested in obtaining a pilot’s certificate for recreation or to begin a flying career there are a variety of options available.  Private Pilot Certificate (PPL) training is the place to start. With a Private Pilot’s certificate you can rent any single engine aircraft and fly yourself on an exciting vacation or just for pure fun. Start your flight training in our economic Cessna 152 trainer or Cessna 172. Private pilots looking to improve their skills should complete an Instrument Rating(IR) course. This training will allow for night time and weather flying with more confidence and better control over your aircraft. The subject matter covered will further your knowledge of airspace and navigation. It makes you a much more solid pilot capable of overcoming many flying conditions. If you are interested in flying faster and higher Multi-Engine training will open another class of aircraft for you. Most students combine this course with their Commercial certification to make the most of their flight time and budget. Pilots that are career minded must reach Commercial Certificate CPL in order to fly for compensation or for hire. This is when a savvy pilot can begin getting paid for spending time in the sky. At this point you can share your knowledge with others as a Certified Flight Instructor or you can go straight to Airline Transport Pilot Certificate (ATP). The sky is not always the limit, it’s just the beginning. Ready to Start?   Fill out...

Wayman Flight Training was the first flight training center in Florida to make the Frasca MENTOR Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) available to General Aviation pilots and students. It has expanded it’s offerings with a Redbird FMX full-motion training device. The Redbird FMX is a great platform for aspiring pilots and for aviator earning their instrument rating. The enclosed space and 180° view allow low time pilots to visualize the pattern. The high level of realism will suspend disbelief. Redbird has also created Flying Challenge modules that allow pilots to practice Spot Landings, Steep Turns, and Lazy 8s without the need for an accompanying instructor. Their master CFIs guide you through the maneuvers through a lightweight headset. The MENTOR, based on the authentic GARMIN G1000 glass system, is ideal for glass cockpit initial training, glass-transition training, or recurrent training. Wayman’s MENTOR AATD features 10-inch panel displays and a 72” viewing screen in its Cessna 172 G1000 simulator. The C-172 remains the most popular aircraft trainer in aviation and is a familiar platform for learning or mastering the G1000 cockpit, or on which to take an IFR refresher course. Wayman Aviation points out that under the FARs (14 CFR Part 61), their FTDs allows students to train up to 2 ½ hours toward their Private certificate, fully half of the 40 hours required for their Instrument rating, and as many as 50 hours towards their commercial pilot certificate. This saves expensive air time and reduces air traffic congestion, increasing safety while lowering flight training’s “carbon footprint.” Pilots will be much better prepared to fly in the Air Traffic system because they...
