Learn to Fly

Through our sister company, Waltzing Matilda Training LLC (WMT) you can learn to fly in the safest and most student friendly training aircraft with the best instructors in New England*.

Whether you are 15 or 60 years old you are never too young or too old to learn to fly. At WMT we own and operate a Diamond DA-40 single-engined training aircraft equipped with the latest in technology – the Garmin G1000. Get your Private Pilot’s License and then progress to your Instrument Rating all on the same aircraft.

We operate out of Norwood Airport (KOWD)* conveniently located just 10 miles SSW of downtown Boston. And unlike other airports in the Boston region, you won’t waste time and money sitting on the ground waiting behind a long line of aircraft. We provide one of the most economical ways to learn to fly with the best aircraft to learn in and the best instructor.

What some of our students say about our Chief Flying Instructor, Tim Daneau:

“Tim is clearly a great pilot himself, but a wonderful instructor as well.”

“Tim knows how to push you within the boundaries of safety, while building your self-confidence”

“Tim always knows how to find something good in a totally botched exercise. He’s a very patient instructor and always makes you feel very good about yourself.”

“Tim has a unique way of making you want to be a great pilot. The day for the next lesson could never come fast enough.”

“I credit Tim with getting me my ticket.  I had become discouraged taking lessons from one of the large, established flight schools, finding that most of their instructors have little interest in teaching, and are relatively inexperienced.   I had given up on my dream of becoming a private pilot.  Tim turned that around.  He is an incredibly good teacher who helps you get it, with patience, understanding, and deep rooted experience and knowledge. With Tim, you are flying with an experienced jet pilot that loves to fly, and enjoys teaching.   Now when I fly I usually have Tim fly right seat as my safety pilot.  I feel safer with him at my side, have an enjoyable co-pilot on the trip, and I know I will learn something new on every flight”
