In response to the projected outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), and the Governor's Executive Orders, we are continuously adjusting activities on the Willamette Aviation campus. Our current requirements are set out below.
Dual flight instruction and dual simulator training is ongoing, under specific conditions. Pilots flying with CFIs are expected to exhibit no fever, shortness of breath, or dry cough. Customers can expect to answer additional questions prior to any dual flights.
Staff and customers using Willamette Aviation aircraft and flight simulators are required to wear masks during all phases of flight. (This does not apply to solo pilots or flights limited to immediate family.)
All staff, customers, and guests on the Willamette Aviation campus are required to maintain a minimum six-foot distance from each other at all times, both indoors and outdoors. Willamette Aviation staff will notify people if they are not maintaining an appropriate distance.
All staff, customers, and guests on the Willamette Aviation campus are required to wear masks when inside one of our public facilities. This includes the Pilots Lounge, briefing rooms, and Education Hangar.
Since aviation and flight training in the United States are regulated by the federal government, all pre-solo student pilots flying at Willamette Aviation are strongly encouraged to apply for and obtain student pilot certificates from the FAA.
