Flight Sims Donated for High Schools

Corporate Aircraft Association Funds Small Oklahoma Trial Initiative to Boost Aviation Interest in Students

Five Oklahoma flight schools will receive flight simulators donated by the Corporate Aircraft Association, meant to enhance the classroom implementation of a High School Aviation Curriculum. 

The schools were selected by the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission to serve as the initial, higher-intensity standard bearers of high-quality aviation programs in each of their respective regions. The Corporate association funded and donated the sim equipment as a result of studying with the commission the most effective way to benefit young students to stimulate an interest in aviation. Oklahoma schools were chosen by the association because of the "positive interactions they had at airports within the Oklahoma Airport System. They worked with the Commission to determine the most effective way to benefit students interested in aviation." The donated systems will go to bolster the curriculum during this school year, hopefully showing a measure of success that inspires an expansion of the program. 

“We appreciate the Corporate Aircraft Association’s gift to Oklahoma schools,” stated State Director of Aeronautics, Grayson Ardies. “By providing flight simulators, CAA will help school districts implement the “You Can Fly” curriculum with fidelity and will ensure that Oklahoma continues to lead the way in equipping students to enter the aviation industry.”

“CAA’s mission is to support and to preserve corporate and general aviation. I can’t think of a better way to reach so many students. We hope these simulators help inspire an entire generation to consider a career in aviation,” said Bob Bordes, president of CAA.
