The third session of the Intro to Flight program was held at the Gateway Youth Aeronautical Foundation on Saturday, February 4. Each class (morning and afternoon) began with a motivational talk by Jim Hunt, former fighter pilot with the Missouri Air National Guard who also flew with Ozark Airlines and American Airlines. He currently flies general aviation aircraft with a club at Creve Coeur Airport. The students went on to another fun lesson in aeronautics and flew patterns in a Cessna 150 on the V/R flight simulators. After each class, the students got to sit in a real Cessna 150 on static display outside of the hangar thanks to owner/pilot Jill Rempala.
