Norwood Flight Academy, a Cessna Pilot Center at Norwood Memorial Airport (OWD) in Massachusetts, has revealed plans to expand.
“I don’t have to tell anyone that the past couple of years have been very challenging,” said Michael Thomas, president. “But we feel that the time to expand is now because the worst is over and the economy and aviation are poised to recover strongly.”
As part of this expansion strategy, Thomas decided to move the school to a new location overlooking the entire airport. It’s a location that has a lot of history as the building that housed Wiggins Airways which, at one time, had one of the largest schools in the Northeast. “We’re hoping some of that old Wiggins magic will rub off,” joked Thomas.
“We’ve already added another aircraft to the fleet — a 2008 Cessna 172SP, and we are in the process of becoming certified as a 141 school,” added Thomas, who noted that other improvements include online scheduling and a newly revamped website.
