Palm Coast, FL – Teens-In-Flight is proud to announce that their first student to graduate from the organization has been selected to the United States Air Force for a designated pilot seat, and Teens-In-Flight current student, Cora Rand, has passed her FAA Private Pilot written examination.

“Juan Rodriguez was our very first student in Teens-In-Flight's Flagler program to earn his Private Pilot License,” said Col Jack Howell, the program’s administrator. “These pilot seats are extremely competitive,” said Col. Howell. “You have to be top-notch to be selected and we couldn’t be more proud,” he added. The organization assisted Juan in obtaining an Air Force ROTC scholarship to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, FL. Juan was selected to the USAF for a designated pilot seat when he is commissioned May, 2014.

Teens-In-Flight also congratulates student pilot Cora Rand for her successful completion of the FAA Private Pilot written examination. Cora is an outstanding student who was selected to fly a cross country flight to Aurora,CO as part of the Teens-In-Flight fundraiser to support the shooting victims at the Century Theater in August, 2012. Cora logged approximately 15 hours of flight time, some of which was under Instrument Flight Regulations (IFR) conditions. Cora is expected to Solo within the next few weeks. “Our kids have worked very hard and they deserve all the recognition they can get,” said Col. Howell.

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.
