ABOUT DUNKIRK AVIATION
Dunkirk Aviation is a family owned and operated flight
school, that is located at the Chautauqua County/Dunkirk Airport in Dunkirk, New York.
After several years of teaching U.S. Army Air Corp pilots how to fly during World War II, John J. Nalbone Sr. founded a flight school at the Werle Airport nearby and began teaching civilians to fly in late 1945.
In 1958, he moved the flight school to its current location at the Dunkirk Airport. And in 1970, Dunkirk Aviation Flight School joined with the Cessna Aircraft Company to become one of the original Cessna Pilot Center charter members when Cessna founded the CPC program of integrated flight training.
