Flight Night Program
FLIGHT PATH will continue to offer the free FLIGHT NIGHT program for middle and high school students. Click on the button below for program details. Next year we will be adding a second level program for those students with the aptitude and desire to explore a career in aviation. This higher-level program will offer students a skills assessment and personal introduction to aviation professionals who will explain what is involved in becoming a pilot, aviation mechanic, air traffic controller, aeronautical engineer, or flight operations manager. We will again be working with local STEM teachers to find ways to include the FLIGHT NIGHT program as a STEM option.
Last year the COVID virus temporarily stopped the FLIGHT NIGHT programs. We have started the program again in October 2021. Please click on the link below for the FLIGHT NIGHT sign-up website. With our airport tour and other aviation activities, FLIGHT NIGHT participants are required to sign a release waiver. Please click on the link below to download the waiver or sign it at the Flight Night event. Parents or guardians and the student are required to sign the waiver.
The FLIGHT PATH organization has plans to add a third simulator, utilizing an existing Cessna 172 fuselage to enhance the realism of the flight experience. We are currently looking for donations and volunteer students and adults to assist with the conversion of the fuselage to a simulator. Please contact us at the email below if would like to help. And with support from the aviation community and local benefactors, FLIGHT PATH plans to offer student grants for introductory flights or ground school and subsequent pilot training.
