On Final Approach!

Almost 12 years after opening our doors, we’ve set our sights on a significant strategy to upgrade our campus and advance our mission. Flight Plan is a bold project that will help us graduate well-rounded, career-ready students. The WMAA Board approved this project in 2018 to accomplish three important objectives for our school:

Expand our flight training capacity with our own hangar, a third plane and classroom/lab space for aviation.

Reconfigure our existing building to make room for our popular and growing engineering course offerings.

Provide supportive resources related to aviation scholarships, teacher retention and student services.

Although fundraising is not yet complete, we chose to begin construction on the Flight Training Center in 2020 to align with school and construction schedules. This building, along with capital equipment investments, resources the aviation program to meet demand and preserves WMAA’s inclusive approach to aviation.

We finished construction in August and the Flight Training Center opened at the beginning of the fall 2021 semester. (See photo gallery below for images of the Flight Training Center as well as the dedication ceremony.)

Get Involved

We have $125,000 left to raise (as of 11/28/22) to finish funding the Flight Training Center, program enhancements, teacher development/retention and campaign costs.

We welcome your financial support of this project. You can download the project brochure, which includes a tear-off gift form. Additionally, there are some naming opportunities available to commemorate significant gifts. Please contact Meggan George if you would like to learn more.
