Friday's Fabulous Flyers!

Aeronautical Science Pathway Students

Yesterday I dropped down to the Museum of Flight as a guest speaker at the Aeronautical Science Pathway program. And I gifted the students a copy of Flight to Success. These students are already on the path to success!

Aeronautical Science Pathway is a program for High School Juniors and Seniors in the Puget Sound Region where they get free college credits while in high school! 

These students are fast-tracking their college education in pursuit of becoming a Professional Pilot or looking into the field of Aviation in Operations Management! I actually met a couple students that I know I will be flying with before I retire!

  1. Wow... :) So, Karlene, how is this program
    FIT into their schedule?

    Did you do any learning on your own, about
    FLYING, when you were their age?

    1. Paul, these students attend high school all day, and then they go back to class from 3:45 to 6 pm. It's quite a schedule and you seriously must applaud their efforts.

      I wish something like this had been available. At their age I was working full time after school... back then students could work 40 hours per week. And then the days I wasn't working, I was at the airport study flight lessons.

      But, I think this is just awesome!!
      Thanks for your comment.
