Palm Coast, FL – Teens-In-Flight announced that 13-year-old Elizabeth Starke has been accepted into their flight program.
Elizabeth is the daughter of United States Army Specialist First Class Ronald Starke. The elder Starke is a former Marine Sergeant who was seriously injured in Iraq and is medically retired from the military.
“Elizabeth is a sharp student,” said Col Jack Howell, the program’s founder. “We are confident that she will do well in the program,” he added.
Teens-In-Flight is a 501(C) 3 foundation formed to support the families of our military. Through the modem of aerospace education we open the doors of opportunity. Teens-In-Flight provides flight training and aviation maintenance scholarships to those teens that have lost a parent in the Global War on Terrorism or, is the teen of a parent who was wounded in action and is disabled. Another phase of the program also focuses on selected teens that are considered "at risk" within our community by providing a positive aviation intervention experience. The program could not exist without the generous donations of our partner FourStarAero, a private aviation company that donates office space, flight instructors, and the aircraft for Teens-In-Flight students. FourStarAero is owned by father and son partners Wayne and Josh Jackson. Josh is the chief flight instructor for Teens-In-Flight.
