Wanna be a pilot

At Washin Air, we not only have Experience Flight courses, but courses for those aspiring to become commercial airline pilots as well.  A variety of courses are available from Private pilots to ATP (Airline Transport Pilot) to FAA license certification.

Economical and Efficient!

Get a License the Economical and Efficient Way! Here at Washin Air, we conduct our training right in our back yard, which is the Honolulu International Airport. It's a memorable experience for those who are aspiring to become professional pilots and private pilots.

Become a Pilot in Hawaii!
Hawaii's weather is relatively stable throughout the year, making it an ideal location for flight training. Flights arrive daily, and you can participate within a relatively short time, so it's possible to start training even on your arrival date. For those leaving on an evening flight, you might be able to come fly in the morning before you leave. It can be more convenient and economical than getting licensed on mainland USA.
Lessons from our Experienced Instructors
Licenses issued in Hawaii are valid all across the US. The Instructors at Washin Air are extensively experienced, and many have ATP licenses, which is the highest level of pilot certification. If you have a High School diploma or equivalent, the average time to get a license is about 2 to 3 months.
Become a Real Pilot and Fly Everywhere!
We use the Honolulu International Airport, for training because there is a control tower. Some flight schools offer quick certification on private airstrips, which often do not teach how to communicate with the ground, making you a pilot who can only fly on training grounds. At Washin Air, communication with the control tower is part of the priority of the training course, which will allow you to fly in and out of any airport.

FAA Approved!

FAA Approved Flight School
The Federal Aviation Administration regulates and inspects the aircraft, facilities, documents and instructors. Schools must pass this rigorous inspection to be certified by the agency. Washin Air received certification for clearance of the facility, Instructors and equipment. Every 2 years, we go through a rigorous shakedown by the FAA, and if there are any discrepancies, we lose our certification. Only the schools with the highest standards receive this certificate.
