Palm Coast, FL – Teens-In-Flight is proud to announce that two of their students have been accepted into Embry Riddle Aeronautical University for the Fall 2014 session with scholarships.
“Ryan Peeling and Cora Rand have been giving the opportunity to attend ERAU,” said Col Jack Howell, the program's administrator. "Every time one of our students goes on to college, it makes everything we do worth it and keeps us motivated to continue to grow and develop our program," he added.
In addition to both students receiving scholarships to ERAU, they have passed their FAA Ground School Private Pilot examination, and are just a few flight hours away from earning their Private Pilot license. Ryan is a senior at Flagler Palm Coast High School, Palm Coast, FL and Cora is a senior at Seabreeze High School, Ormond Beach, FL.
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.
