Aviation Full-Motion Simulator Training / Cessna 210 T210 P210
The office of Flight Level Aviation
and our full-motion advanced avionics simulator are located on the
field of Greene County Airport in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania (KWAY).
The office is on the east side of the airport and is physically
attached to the large Strope's Aircraft Maintenance hangar.
The simulator office is fully heated and air conditioned and thus
remains comfortable for training all year round.
Waynesburg is in Southwest Pennsylvania close to the Ohio and West
Virginia borders. The closest airports with commercial service are
Pittsburgh International (KPIT) and Morgantown, West Virginia (MGW).
Address: Flight Level Aviation's mailing address is 60
Stockton Avenue, Uniontown, PA 15401. Flight Level Aviation's
physical address and simulator location is Greene County Airport,
421 East Roy Furman Highway (Route 21), Waynesburg, PA 15370.
Driving: Greene County Airport is located on Route 21
less than a mile east of the Route 21 exit (Exit 14) on Interstate 79.
(From Greater Pittsburgh Airport, when exiting the airport follow
signs to Route 60 South and then I-79 South and take I-79 Exit 14.)
General Aviation: Flight Level Aviation bases its Cessna P210
at KWAY since this airport has an excellent independent maintenance
facility on the field Ė Stropeís Aircraft Maintenance. Since KWAY
is not served by a published instrument approach procedure, Flight
Level Aviation is glad to provide free transportation for pilots who
fly in for flight training or simulator use and choose to land at
Morgantown,WV (KMGW) or Connellsville, PA (KVVS). Just call (724)
880-2948 or (724) 430-5319 to arrange transportation. (Efforts
are underway to develop an instrument approach to KWAY -- we hope this
will occur shortly!)
for a VFR sectional with KWAY's location.
When driving from Greater Pittsburgh Airport (KPIT), after exiting the
airport follow signs to Route 60 South and then I-79 South and take
I-79 Exit 14 (Route 21/Waynesburg). Go east 1/2 mile to Comfort
Inn and another 1/2 mile to KWAY airport.
For pilots arriving on commercial international flights, Pittsburgh
International (KPIT) is the most convenient destination.
By special request, for international pilots wishing to combine flight
training with travel around the U.S., Richard can provide flight
training in N102KY in the Washington, D.C. area at Leesburg, VA
airport (KJYO) for an additional fee of $250 per day.
For pilots flying in for multiple-day flight instruction, Richard or
his staff are glad to pick you up and drop you off most weekdays at a
nearby hotel. For those who arrive in the evening or on
weekends, inexpensive taxi service is also available in Waynesburg or
often John Strope at Strope's Aircraft Maintenance can drop you off at
a local hotel or loan you a courtesy car. Rental cars are available during business
hours at Morgantown airport (KMGW) or with advance notice at KWAY from
Enterprise Rent-A-Car. The following local contact phone numbers may
Richardís Cell Phone
Stropeís Aircraft Maintenance
(Willing to offer logistical help or local transportation to Flight Level Aviation customers
or to provide access to the Flight Level Aviation simulator after
hours by appointment -- Note that Flight Level Aviation's office on
Waynesburg Airport is attached to the Strope's Aircraft Maintenance
Flight Level Aviation Office

Waynesburg Comfort Inn
(This is the closest lodging to Waynesburg airport -- it is located
within the traffic pattern of Waynesburg Airport and no more than a
15 minute walk from the airport for a physically fit pilot. However, the walk would be on
the shoulder of a busy 2-lane highway and there is a very steep hill up
to the hotel entrance, so this may not be practical in
cold weather and/or with significant luggage.)
If you need transportation from
Waynesburg airport to the Comfort Inn, this may be arranged by
calling the manager in advance and advising him you are flying in to
train with Flight Level Aviation -- his contact info is Jarrod
Richter (724) 627-3700.
Waynesburg Super 8
Uniontown Fairfield Inn
(25-minute drive from Waynesburg though more upscale than above
options -- just follow Route 21 east to Uniontown PA)
(Ask for the "Western Pennsylvania Special" for a $9.95 daily rate
Friday-Monday; otherwise mention you are visiting Flight Level
Aviation and you will receive a weekday rate of $33.99 daily)
For pilots who wish to combine
flight training with a family trip to scenic Western Pennsylvania,
there are two fly-in resort options. Nemacolin Woodlands (www.nemacolin.com)
is a 5-star resort with a spa and PGA-class golf course which has a
4,000-foot VFR-only private runway which is open to resort guests.
Seven Springs (www.7springs.com)
is a ski resort with a 3,000-foot public airport and VOR instrument
approach. Richard can meet you at either resort to begin
training weather-permitting; please note both landing sites often
close in the winter, although the resorts are open year-round.
