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,”
Teens-In-Flight also congratulates student pilot Cora Rand for her successful completion of the FAA Private Pilot written examination.

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.
