Twelve local students, along with several others from as far away as California, New Mexico, New Jersey and North Carolina, have participated in a unique class taught this week at the STEM Center in Halifax. They are learning how to fly a plane as they sit at their desks, listening to volunteer retired military instructors who know what they are talking about. The class will prepare the students to take an FAA written exam which could lead to a pilot’s license.
