Summer Opportunity for Students

posted Jan 28, 2021, 8:09 AM by Amy Abell

Do you have dreams of one day becoming a commercial airline pilot and traveling the world? The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC), in partnership with Averett University, Aviation Adventures, and the Virginia Department of Aviation, is offering flight academies at no cost for high school students statewide.
Selected students who have shown an interest in becoming a commercial pilot and have shown an interest and passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) will undertake virtual ground training and in-person flight sessions that can potentially culminate in their first solo flight!
This intensive program will be offered between June 21 and July 16, 2021. The application package deadline is February 28, 2021.
