Interactive Ground School to Debut on May 3rd
The Wolf Aviation Fund recently awarded Up, Up, and Away in Hunterdon, Inc. (UUAH) a grant to assist with the presentation of The Art and Science of Flying Ground School. The ground school will debut at Alexandria Field Airport on May 3, 2014 as part of the 19th New Jersey Aviation Conference hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Aviation Coalition (MAAC).
Art and Science moves the second day of the Aviation Conference from its formal symposium setting in Princeton out to a small airport in Pittstown, NJ to highlight the importance of local airports to their communities. The interactive event takes a high level look at the miracle of flight in general, and of airplane and human performance in particular. It has been designed for pilots as well as school teachers and students interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. Pilots are eligible for WINGS credit, and school teachers can submit the ground school curriculum for approval toward professional development credit requirements.
Presenters include eight-time Master Instructor and 2014 National FAASTeam Rep of the Year Rich Stowell, and Advanced Ground Instructor and airport co-owner Linda Castner. According to Stowell, “The Wolf Aviation Fund received many deserving applications this year, so we are very grateful to be included on the list of grant recipients.” He added, “The grant will help offset the cost to put on the ground school, keeping the registration fee to just fifty dollars for a daylong event that includes lunch.” Seating is limited to 100 participants.
The Alfred L. and Constance C. Wolf Aviation Fund was created to help individuals work together in support of general aviation. Grants support “individuals and groups doing great work shaping the future of aviation.”
