Student Life

Flight Training

Students of Wayman Aviation come from around the world and from all walks of life. From sixteen year old summer students to pinstriped weekend warriors and retired but not resting seniors. Flying is an experience anyone can enjoy. Our staff can accommodate students in English, Spanish, Hebrew, French, and Portuguese.

Students entering a career in aviation and private pilots looking to take more advantage of their skill should complete an Instrument course. This training will allow for nighttime flying and better control over your aircraft as well as further knowledge of airspace. If you are interested in flying faster and higher Multi-Engine training will open another class of aircraft for use, such as our Piper PA-44 Seminole.

Loving the FlightThose interested in flying commercially must apply for Commercial Certificate. This rating will lift restrictions that private pilot’s have receiving compensation for flying. This is when a savvy pilot can begin getting paid for spending time in the sky. Your next step can be training to become an FAA Certified Flight Instructor, CFI/CFII/MEI, or you can go straight to ATP, Airline Transport Pilot. The sky is not always the limit.

Pilots are a rare breed. We will fly hours to eat a $100 hamburger. Of course its not for the meal, its to be up there. Up in the sky, at the controls of your aircraft. Any reason to fly a little farther.

Aviation is a Lifestyle. It encompasses more than just our bank accounts. Flying is a state of mind, the manifestation of our dreams. That is worth paying for your T-hangar, and scheduling yearly maintenance.

“How do you spot a pilot a party?

Don’t worry about it, he’ll let you know.”

That mental state stays with you on the drive home, at your kids soccer games, and around the office water cooler. I have an airplane keychain, and my 7 month old son has a closet full of airplane themed onesies. Its hard to avoid planes once they’re on the mind.

As pilots its our duty to extend the community. To be active members of our general aviation airports. Wayman Aviation, Wayman Pilot Supplies, and The Cylinder Shop are all sister companies based out of Opa Locka Airport in Miami, FL. A great place to fly, and a central hub for the US, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe. One of the many crossroads of the world
