New Flyers Association
The nonprofit New Flyers Association empowers student aviators to improve their soaring skills under the tutelage of certified flight instructors. Whether taking off for the first time on an introductory flight or logging hours in pursuit of a Sport Pilot license, pupils experience the freedom of winged travel aboard such flying machines as a Flight Design CTLS or Piper Cherokee, depending on availability. The association makes its nest in hangar A-10 at The Ohio State University’s Don Scott Airport, a general aviation airport that allows students to learn fundamentals in a professional environment that's safer than jumping from the top bunk bed.
