OAS Flying Club Partnership Makes Flight Training Accessible to Yingling Aviation Employees

Ortega Aviation Services (OAS), a flight training, testing, and consulting facility in Wichita, KS, and Yingling Aviation, one of the largest MRO/FBO’s at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower Airport, announced today a partnership to offer a Flying Club to Yingling Aviation employees.

Launching later this month, Yingling Aviation will begin subsidizing a portion of the flight training, ground school, and airplane rental costs for active employees who wish to obtain their private pilot, instrument, or commercial license(s) with OAS, or rent OAS airplanes for leisure flying.

Also located at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower Airport, OAS owns and operates a fleet of two G1000 equipped Cessna 172 Skyhawks, a G3X Piper Pilot 100i, and a G1000 equipped Diamond DA42 Twinstar, all available for student training. In addition to flight training for single and multi-engine ratings, OAS houses a Frasca AATD configurable Simulator, a G1000 Simulator, a G1000 Legacy & NXI Systems Trainer, and a Garmin Cross-Country Training Simulator.

“We certainly value our relationship with Yingling and are excited to grow our partnership beyond the care of our OAS fleet” says Teresa Ortega, Managing Partner of Ortega Aviation Services. “Building a successful flying club to help pilots realize their dream, and further enhance the future of aviation in the Wichita community, is a privilege we are very proud to be a part of.”

“This is an exciting partnership between Yingling Aviation & Ortega Aviation Services. Putting together a Yingling Aviation Flying Club for our employees has been on the list for a while” says Andrew Nichols, President of Yingling Aviation. “We’ve been waiting for the right partner and are thrilled that Ortega Aviation Services can satisfy all our needs. From rental to discovery flights, to training in simulators, and their modern aircraft fleet, I can tell you our employees are excited and ready to get flying!”
