Learn to Fly for Free Contest takes off

South Carolina’s Greenville Downtown Airport, Airwolf Aviation Services, and Greenville Jet Center have joined forces with Greenville Business Magazine to give away a flight training package.

“Many business people don’t realize how much a pilot’s license can help their business, literally, takeoff!” stated Michele Rash, owner of Airwolf Aviation Services. “Greenville Business Magazine is helping us educate our business public on the power of flight. We gave their writer a flight training experience and she wrote a great article about her experience and on how aviation can help business people reach new heights in their non-aviation business. Most of our students are business people who see the need to expand their business using aviation, but many people still haven’t thought about it.”

“Our industry foresees a future shortage of trained pilots,” stated Hank Brown, owner of Greenville Jet Center. “This contest is one way that we can help make a difference. It may bring us one new pilot and it may also inspire others to learn. I have been in aviation for 53 years. I was introduced to it and never left. I would like to inspire others to the miracle of flight.”

“Greenville Business Magazine is always looking for ways to support local business,” according to Lori Coon, publisher of Greenville Business Magazine. “Partnering with Airwolf Aviation Services, Greenville Downtown Airport and Greenville Jet Center, we are excited about providing the opportunity for someone to expand their business.
