2017 Michigan Wing Flight Academy
June 30 – July 8th 2017
Alpena, MI


Welcome to the 2017 Michigan Wing Flight Academy held in Alpena, Michigan. The week long powered flight academy teaches cadets age 16 and above how to fly a Cessna 172 aircraft. While we are operating at the same time and on base with the MIWG Encampment, we are not a part of the encampment and cadets will not receive encampment credit for attending.

Direct questions to the academy command staff: Maj Robert Bowden at rbowden@cap.gov and Lt Col Mike Sandstrom at capflyer@me.com

Applications are now being accepted from cadets until 15 May 2017.  Cadets will be contacted after the 15th to set up an interview with final slotting being announced on May 20th.  The cost of the academy is $1400 and includes up to 10 hours of flight time, lodging, meals, log book, and academy uniform.

Additional information such as packing lists, maps, and study materials will be emailed out to cadets selected to attend the academy.

 

TSA Requirements

In order for cadets to receive flight training at the Michigan Wing Flight Academy, they must show prove their proof of citizenship to their Certified Flight Instructor (CFI). In order to prove citizenship to your CFI, you must present original documents.

There are two options for this:

  • US Passport (current and non-expired)
  • Original US birth certificate with raised seal and government-issued picture identification (such as drivers license)

This information is logged into the cadet’s logbook by their CFI. 

Instruction may not begin until this procedure is accomplished.
