Palm Coast, FL – Teens-In-Flight is proud to announce that five of their students have passed their formal FAA private pilot ground examination.
“It’s with extreme pleasure that I announce our latest students that have accomplished what they set out to do,” says Col. Jack Howell, the program’s administrator. “The kids have worked very hard and they deserve all the recognition they can get,” he added.
The students that passed the FAA Private Pilot Ground Examination on December 19th at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University are; Austin Toth, Giovanni Gonzalez, Ryan Peeling, Savannah Dubuc and Daniel Minami
The FAA ground school is a 50-hour intensified program which is immersed in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M). The course is extremely demanding.
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.
