Airwolf Aviation Services at the Greenville Downtown Airport (KGMU) in Greenville, S.C., is now an approved V.A. flight training school, making it the only one in South Carolina.
“There were ones in Sumter and Charleston but they are no longer active,” stated Michele Rash, owner of Airwolf Aviation Services. “It has been a long road to approval but it will benefit many who are in need of job retooling and love aviation.”
“When I retire from the military I will still need to work; and to reenter the civilian work force I will need new job skills,” stated Kenny Monroe, a South Carolina Air National Guard Recruiter. My passion for aviation drew me to join the Air Force in the first place. When I looked at all my options for future employment I decided that being a pilot would be a great second career. Up until now, I would have had to go to another state for training; and since I am married, have two kids and my current military position is here, that would have been impossible to do.”
V.A. offers flight training benefits to those who want to advance their pilot qualifications. Individuals must have a private pilots license and valid medical certification before they start advanced career training. Monroe has been waiting for Airwolf’s approval and is now moving forward with the required prerequisite of private pilot training, which he is getting from Airwolf, as well.
Airwolf Aviation Services is a flight training school with several locations in South Carolina. For more information: FlyAirwolf.com
