In addition to the Young Eagles Flight, the Houston Aviation Club has sponsored a series of aviation events throughout the year for our students to participate. The first of these events was held Friday at Ellington Field where 15 student were given a special invitation to watch the Wings Over Houston Airshow Practice. Students were hosted by Airport Executives, given exclusive tours, opportunities to interact with pilots and other aviation professionals and were also provided lunch and souvenirs during their experience.
Our relationship with The Houston Aviation Club has been an exceptional boon for our program and these experiences will become valuable assets for our students.
Thank you for your support and for making opportunities like these possible.
