More than 100 National Society of High School Scholar Members Attend Hands-on Aviation Career Exploration Event at Sterling

In conjunction with Purdue University Global, Sterling Flight Training hosted more than 100 student members of the National Society of High School Scholars last week to introduce them to professional flight as an aviation career.

Travelling from across the country, these driven individuals heard from professional pilots, current Purdue global flight students and professors and Sterling flight instructors. With an anticipated pilot shortage on the horizon, the event partners are putting heavy focus on shaping the next generation of pilots and engaging them early on.

In addition to the education sessions, Sterling provided Discovery Flights throughout the day giving a good majority of the attendees a chance to take control of an aircraft for the first time. Feedback on the event was phenomenal. In addition to Sterling’s fleet, Piper Aircraft flew in an experimental trainer from Vero Beach. Here’s a look at some of the highlights.
