Student First Flight Experiences

During the past year, we have taken 11 more students for their first flight lesson.  For half of the students, it was their first flight ever in an aircraft.  Five of the students were enrolled in the summer course offered by GKWFA in partnership with the Trio – Upward Bound Math & Science program.  The other six are current students at DaVinci Science and Hawthorne High schools.  Read below to hear the students share their flight experiences in their own words.  (Have Jon, Jerry, and Luis write their experiences).
