Ladies and Gentlemen or should I say, "Pilot trainees"!

I am proud to announce that Historic Wendover Airfield, The Arizona Ground Crew and the Utah CAF Will be hosting a World War II pilot training camp this coming September!

WIX is getting the exclusive announcement prior to our making the camp public on Friday. This will be a 4 day camp similar to "Bomber Camp" but held in Wendover, Utah. Air Cadets will be sleeping in the WWII Barracks and messing (eating) in the WWII Mess Hall. Ground School will be conducted in the massive 'Enola Gay' hangar. Visit the WWII Service Club on base while not training for a little relaxation or just sit on your bunk in the barracks and write a letter home on your footlocker. But don't count on too much down time as there will be flight time each day for all students - two flights in a Stearman and two flights in a T-6 'Texan'.

You will be immersed into the lifestyle and culture of the USAAF while serving during this Training Camp. You will learn what it was like to be an Air Cadet during WWII.

You can register here: http://www.planetreg.com/WWIIPilotTrainingCamp And check out the facebook page at : https://www.facebook.com/FIGHTERCAMP/

Then, Historic Wendover Airfield is hosting our annual air show on Saturday September 9th featuring the US Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet Demo as well as a number of other aerobatic performers and warbird displays!

If you have questions post them here and either Scott or I will get right back to you!

This will be a deep immersion for the students, they will be "transported" back to 1943 and be cadets in an AAF flight training program and have ground instructors to help "guide" them through their military training too.
