Prowings Flying Club was established in 2011 and is a light aircraft flying training unit on YSFlight. The current Chief Flying Instructor (CFI) is Dave.
Flying Training Edit
Pro wings conducts flying training (also known as the Prowings Flying Scholarship) is very similar to real world military elementary flying training provided by the Royal Air Force (RAF). The flying training is not too realistic as to not turn away potential new pilots or not too simple that it is too easy. Its just the right amount, for the student to learn basic flying skills and have a laugh at the same time!
