This Illinois Wing activity has been the premier cadet aviation academy at Mattoon, IL, since its inception in 1967.  The academy is named after its founder and long-time commander who is still an active member in the Arizona Wing.

 Flight operations are conducted at Coles County Memorial Airport in Mattoon, IL.  Billeting is in dormitories at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL.  Along with daily flight instruction, cadets receive ground instruction in their respective programs.  Please check the Johnson Flight Academy Website to find travel information, required forms, and for primary cadets to submit their supplemental data form.  This website is updated regularly and is your primary source of information.  Johnson Flight Academy Website

Activity Director, Major Robert Bowden, stated, “JFA draws cadets from across the country. It is a unique activity because it brings together cadets all with a love of flying. Only at JFA can you receive hands-on flight training in powered aircraft, gliders or hot air balloons.  Many cadets attend for three years to attend all three programs.”

Session 1 has openings for 18 powered flight training and 2 for G1000 familiarization.  G1000 requires previous attendance at a flight academy.

Session 2 has openings for 8 power, 20 glider and 8 balloon students,

The academy is in need of senior members as well.  There are openings for: power, glider and balloon certified flight instructors; tow pilots, public affairs officers, administrative and other support positions. Seniors need to enroll for each week they wish to attend.
