The Air Force Has Partnered With The Civil Air Patrol In Flight Training Efforts
Flight training staged by the Civil Air Patrol and U.S. Air Force at US Aviation Academy and Denton Enterprise Airport is bringing a considerable amount of activity to Denton from March 22 to April 2, 2021.
The Air Force has partnered with the Civil Air Patrol to train active duty Department of the Air Force officers and enlisted Airmen and Space Professionals interested in becoming a rated officer. The Denton chapter of Civil Air Patrol personally reached out to USAA to rent classroom and ramp space for the Air Force’s flight training.
There are over 50 cadets and over 15 Civil Air Patrol airplanes from all over the country training locally in Denton. This resulted in the increase of local hotel traffic with more than 100 rooms being rented for several weeks. Participants of the training are also expected to frequent local restaurants and businesses during their stay.
“We are generating approximately 5,500 gallons of Avgas sales over the cadets’ two-week training,” said Scott Sykes, VP of Business Development.
“We are also showcasing KDTO by bringing in Air Force officers, cadets and Civil Air Patrol volunteers from all over the country and building a reputation for Denton in the aviation community.”
In addition to providing training for collegiate partnership programs and the United States Department of Defense, USAA offers FAA Part 141 training including Private, Instrument, Commercial and Certified Flight Instructor ratings. US Aviation Academy has a fleet of over 120 aircraft and simulators.
