There is a looming shortage of commercial pilots and a group of Coachella Valley aviators wants to change this anticipated problem. How? Through our youth!
So, they started the Coachella Valley Youth Aviation Education Program. Supported by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, the Experimental Aircraft Association and local aviation groups, this school will give students the desire, drive and ability to become our future commercial pilots.
These three-week sessions will start on July 28th, teaching high school students throughout the valley all about the life of a pilot and cultivate their interest in aviation.
Normally, learning how to fly can be very expensive, but through this program, all the major costs of ground school training, flight log books, navigational charts, flight physical exams and the FAA student pilot license, will be reduced.
Our future lies in the hands of these pilots and the Coachella Valley Youth Aviation Education Program will give them room to spread their wings! For more information on this exciting program, click here.
