Come Fly With Me

We stopped by Powered Flight and were able to catch some of the groups after their landing and before take off. Because of the weather we weren't able to get all of the Cadets participating in Powered Flight this week but we will be stopping by again next week! So keep checking in! 

The Powered Flight Program is a capstone course that serves as a culmination of a cadet’s aviation education. Lessons in Air Force heritage and principles of engineering are applied in real-life scenarios during nine flights in a single engine propeller driven aircraft. The training includes ground and flight instruction using T-53s, military instructors provide a basic introduction to Air Force pilot training and the experience of powered flight. Based on proficiency, approximately 50% of these students will solo. The training includes ground and flight instruction under an Air Education and Training Command (AETC) flying syllabus.
