This is more than a flight school; it’s a concept and a solution. The perfect win, win, win situation. This school is the foundation of a program that addresses a nationwide problem that affects all children in all communities, the lack of after school activities, mentorship, positive role models, and funding for pilot training. Studies have shown that the highest percentages of juvenile crimes occur between the hours from 3-6 p.m.
The Aero Squad After School Program keeps kids off the streets and prepare them for a great career.
