Flying for Cockpit Companions is offered Saturday, May 12, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Larry Hastings Terminal at the Lander Airport.
Instructor Andy Gramlich has designed the class to train non-pilots who frequently fly with friends and family members to function as cockpit crew members.
Students will gain an understanding of flight operations and improve their enjoyment of flying.
The $30 course covers aircraft control, navigations and radio communications.
On May 19, Gramlich will give an introduction to Microsoft Flight Simulator X. The simulator allows participants to visit all parts of the world and fly in all kinds of weather without ever leaving the ground.
