Do you know a student ages 12–17 who’s curious about what it takes to become a pilot? Sign them up for Introduction to Ground School, a four-part workshop created to offer students the basics of pilot training and inspire a love of flight.
Please email Valerie Blome at VBlome@WingsMuseum.org to register.
The cost to attend ground school is $30, and materials will be provided. This fee provides the attendee with an annual “student membership” to Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Museum members are FREE. This course includes an introductory FLIGHT in a single-engine aircraft with a certified Colorado pilot. Flights will be individually scheduled at a later date, and will take place at Wings Over the Rockies Exploration of Flight on the south side of Centennial Airport.
