Annual Wings & Wheels Event also Scheduled for October 1st

BERLIN, MD– September 28, 2022– Ocean Aviation Flight Academy, a world-class flight training institution on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, today announced it is expanding to Delaware. Ocean Aviation is scheduled to open a new flight training facility at Delaware Coastal Airport near Georgetown, Delaware (GED) on October 1, 2022. The annual Wings & Wheels event also will be hosted October 1st at Delaware Coastal Airport from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“This has been a work in progress over the last five months,” said Michael Freed, Ocean Aviation founder and president. “The expansion allows us to better serve new and existing students in Sussex County and surrounding areas farther north and west of our main campus in Ocean City, Maryland. The facility includes new offices and a corporate aircraft hangar to accommodate up to seven training aircraft.” In June, Ocean Aviation signed a long-term lease agreement after submitting the winning proposal to Sussex County officials to base a flight school/training academy at Delaware Coastal Airport, a general aviation facility serving a mix of corporate and small private aircraft in southern Delaware. County and company officials said the partnership will allow for expanded flight training opportunities for the flying public, while giving Ocean Aviation the chance to expand its footprint in the growing Delmarva market. “Sussex County is excited to welcome Ocean Aviation as our newest aviation service provider here at Delaware Coastal Airport,” airport manager Bob Bryant said. “Along with plans to extend the main runway, adding hangar space, and making numerous other improvements, attracting a top-tier pilot and flight training school has long been on our list of top priorities for growing this airport. Bringing Ocean Aviation onboard checks one of the boxes on that list, and we believe their presence will enhance the airport and all it has to offer the flying public here in southern Delaware.”
