The 3 features

Washin Air’s Flight School has the 3 most important features for flight training.
No. 1
No. 1
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 even fly in the morning before you leave. It is more convenient and economical than getting licensed on the mainland.

Lessons from our Experienced Instructors
Licenses issued in Hawaii are valid all throughout the United States. 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 the equivalent, the average time to obtain a license is about 2 to 3 months.

Become a Real Pilot and Fly Everywhere!
We use the Honolulu International Airport for training because it has a control tower. Some flight schools offer quick certification on private airstrips, often skipping ground communication, resulting in a pilot who can only fly on training grounds. At Washin Air, communication with the control tower is a priority, so you can fly in and out of any airport.

Pilot licenses you can earn

All grades of pilot licenses issued by the FAA can be attained at Washin Air.


This is a non-commercial license, which allows you to fly a private aircraft with friends or family aboard.

Commercial Pilot License

This is a commercial license that allows you to receive income as a pilot. There are specific single engine or multi-engine ratings, and a minimum of 250 flight hours is required.

Multi-Engine Rating

If you have a non-commercial pilot’s license, you can apply for this rating. It will allow you to fly an aircraft with more than one engine. The test is only for practical skills, and there are no flight time requirements or written tests, so it can be attained in a relatively short time.

Certified Flight Instructor License

You will be able to teach non-commercial and commercial pilots with this license. Called a CFI, you will need a commercial pilot’s license to attain this.

Instrument Rating

This license allows you to conduct instrument flights in bad weather, when visibility is poor. Single engine and multi-engine licenses are available.

ATP (Airline Transport Pilot)

An ATP is needed to become a Captain of a commercial airliner. A minimum of 1,500 flight hours is necessary.

Training Fee

There are 2 payment methods: “Pay-as-you-go” or “Block Rates”. “Block Rates” is when you create a pre-paid account by purchasing your desired block first, then deducting the fees for the time you flew. The flight fees are the same for both methods, but there is a bonus system for the “Block Rates”, in which the larger the amount you spend, the more extra flight money you receive. It would be a more economical choice to get more flight time for your money.


“Block Rates” prices (Price with bonus, not including tax)
$2,000 ($2,200 value)
$3,000 ($3,330 value)
$4,000 ($4,480 value)
$5,000 ($5,625 value)
$7,000 ($7,950 value)
$10,000 ($11,725 value)
