Isaiah 40:31 Roadmap Notre Dame Pilot Initiative Principles of Flight Syllabus / Policies Private Pilot License Airplane Recognition Notre Dame Pilot Initiative NDPI is a student led effort intended to bring aviation back to the University of Notre Dame. Our mission is to teach the science of flight, inspire the art, and produce aviation candidates for the military and civilian communities. Mutual support network for both student pilots learning to fly and licensed pilots working on advanced ratings and certificates.
