Elite Aviation Flies St. Louis Science Center Flight Academy Campers

By Carmelo Turdo
For the second year, Elite Aviation provided orientation flights from their Spirit of St. Louis Airport facility for 12 St. Louis Science Center Flight Academy campers last Friday. The week-long program (for those 13-16 years old) involved flight simulation sessions at the St. Louis Science Center, culminating in a flight with a Certified Flight Instructor in one of Elite Aviation's modern Cessna 172 Skyhawk fleet aircraft. Two aircraft were in the air Friday, each flying three campers on each flight. The campers appeared to enjoy their flights, and they demonstrated their aviation knowledge while assisting with the pre-flight and post-flight inspections. Several also expressed their interest in pursuing additional flight training in the future. Another Flight Academy session will fly with Elite Aviation again in July.
