Intro to Flight Sessions 12 and 13 Begin Eight-Week Journey Into Practical STEM Education

The Gateway Youth Aeronautical Foundation hosted Sessions 12 and 13 of their Intro to Flight Program March 9 at Creve Coeur Airport. Each class of the eight-week session, led by Ground School Instructor Dave Kleinschmidt, covers a different aspect of flight through academic instruction and practical experience on state-of-the-art virtual reality flight simulators. The final class of each session features a written test and a scored flight pattern exercise flown on the V/R flight simulators. The session point leader is presented with a Top Gun Challenge Award, and all program graduates are eligible for a flight training scholarship from one of the program sponsors, Piston Aviation.

Here we feature the class photos and the students flying the simulators assisted by local pilots Anthony Tornabene and Billy Miller.
