B-25 Flight Training Program

Last Updated: 6/19/2017

A rare opportunity to acquire a Pilot-in-Command (PIC) type rating, a Second-in-Command (SIC) type rating or a one hour Introductory Flight at the controls of a WWII bomber made famous by Gen. Jimmy Doolittle in the “Doolittle Tokyo Raid”. Learn about the history of the North American B-25 “Mitchell” medium bomber and its many roles in WWII. Experience the thrill and sound of both Curtis Wright R-2600 engines developing a total of 3400 horsepower during take-off. Feel the controls as you guide this beautiful piece of history through the skies.

The PIC and SIC courses will include a one day Ground School, flight training in the B-25 “Panchito”, training materials to include checklists, Pilot’s Operating Handbook, course outline and much more. Minimum requirements for each of the training courses are noted below in the course description. Holders of foreign pilot certificates may require a TSA background check or U.S. equivalency certificate. Additional experience levels may be required.

The Orientation Flight will include 2 to 3 hours of ground instruction and one hour of flight instruction. Minimum requirements are a U.S. issued Private Pilot license with a multiengine rating and current U.S. issued third class medical certificate. Holders of foreign pilot certificates may require a TSA background check or U.S. equivalency certificate. Additional experience may be required.

The B-25 Ground School will have no minimum requirements other than a passion for aviation. You do NOT have to be a pilot to sign up for the Ground School. It will be open to anyone who wants to learn more about this great warbird. On selected ground schools, an additional day of a hands-on basic B-25 maintenance program will be offered for those aviation enthusiasts who want to delve deeper into understanding how this WWII icon operates. The B-25 Basic Maintenance Program will be led by our Director of Maintenance.

Our instructors have extensive backgrounds as professional career pilots. Our FAA approved maintenance program is directed by an A&P mechanic with an Inspector Authorization as well as four additional A&P mechanics three of which hold Inspector Authorizations.
