EllensburgのBowers FieldにもMidstate AviationというFBOがあって、自分はそこでフライトトレーニングを行っています。そして今回はこのFBOについて少し紹介でもと。

Midstate Aviationは自家用免許から商業用、双発機、そしてインストラクターライセンスまでの訓練をしてます。そしてもちろんそれらの免許、資格を取るには複数の飛行機が必要な訳です。Midstate AviationはCessna C-152 II、Piper PA-28 Cadet、Piper PA28-161 Warrior III、Piper PA28-181、そしてPiper PA-44 Seminoleを保有しています。最後のPA-44 Seminoleが唯一の双発機ですね。
