Sling Pilot Academy offers free Valentines Day flight lesson to Federal employees

Sling Pilot Academy co-owner Wayne Toddun announces free Valentine Day flight class to Federal employees.


With the uncertainty over another federal government shutdown on February 15, Sling Pilot Academy will offer a free flying course and a flight on Valentine’s Day for federal/TSA employees looking to start a new career.  The event will be from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., Thursday, February 14

Aviation experts, instructors and mechanics from Sling Pilot Academy will be on hand to guide federal government employees looking for a new, exciting and well-paying career as a pilot. Employees must show valid identification. Any student who enrolls by August 1, 2019, will be eligible to apply for a $20,000 scholarship to assist in funding costs for the Accelerated Airline Pilot Program.

Roses and chocolates will be available for all our guests to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Up to 20 individuals will be able to participate in this exciting experience.  


There is a big demand for and shortage of pilots. Starting salaries for pilots can be up to $80,000 and to over $300,000 for those with experience. There is no need for a four-year degree to become a pilot and people can start working after the nine-month program in the aviation industry.

Sling Pilot Academy is owned and operated by partners Matt Liknaitzky, Jean d’Assonville and Wayne Toddun. Sling Flying Club has been training students to become pilots since 2012. Sling Pilot Academy is a full time program to prepare pilots for the airlines in the shortest possible time frame at the lowest cost in the industry – in modern aircraft with glass cockpits.
