Instructed by Presenter Nick Ahlen.  
Life may have gotten in the way, but the dream of flight can be yours again. Returning to the skies is not as difficult as most rusty pilots think. We are inviting you back in the cockpit and will help you get there. Come and participate in this Rusty Pilots program with fellow lapsed pilots. We will help you understand what’s changed in aviation since you last took the controls and brush up on your aviation knowledge. AOPA developed the Rusty Pilots program in partnership with local flight training providers in order to create the best environment for getting you back in the air and a part of the general aviation community.  

  • It is easier than most people think – no FAA check ride or test.

  • Might not even need a medical.

  • Plus, you’ll get two to three hours of ground instruction toward your flight review!  

Coffee and donuts will be provided while supplies last before the Rusty Pilots seminar begins from 8:00 – 8:30 a.m. Lunch will be provided after the Rusty Pilots seminar. If you are interested in staying for lunch (free of charge), you must RSVP by email to by the deadline on Monday, April 17. 

This Rusty Pilots seminar is just one part of an aviation day that is happening at the Wilmington International Airport. If you are interested in learning more about the rest of the day, please visit for details. 

Pre-registration is encouraged since seats fill up fast!
