In the March-April edition of Australian Flying Magazine, the winners or the 2021 CASA Wings Awards were announced and WardAir Flight Training was declared the 2021 Flying Training Organisation of the Year!
The CASA Wings Awards are judged by the Australian Division of the Royal Aeronautical Society and a panel of judges appointed by Australian Flying magazine.
The editor of Australian Flying magazine, Steve Hitchen, has told us that the award was made because of WardAir’s innovative program of taking flying instruction to remote and regional areas. This includes our outback Training Adventures, our group training in rural and regional areas such as Coonabarabran and Charters Towers as well as private training on remote stations, properties and for businesses that don’t have easy access to a flying school or can’t leave the farm or the shop to come and learn to fly.
Steve also said “Ward Air has a great reputation as being a quality school that cares about the progress of their students and has an instructor cohort that is dedicated to their charges. Ward Air is a highly-qualified school that has pressed on through the pandemic and achieved results similar to larger schools with far fewer resources. Ward Air was up against some very stiff competition from much larger schools. We congratulate Ward Air on being the 2021 Flying Training Organisation of the Year.”
We’re thrilled to have our work recognised nationally in this way!
