ABC40 Honor Roll – Students Take to the Skies

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – 7th and 8th grade students took part in a ten week flight program at Barnes Airport. They learned about the history of aviation and the importance of science and math in pursuing a career in aviation.

After passing tests, the students actually flew over their school in a Piper Cub.

Students on the ground spelled “hi” to their junior pilots above.

Students say the program helped them learn what it takes to fly and the work needed to pursue a career in aviation.
