High School Program Director
In partnership with the Virginia Space Grant Consortium, the LU Pathways Flight Academy is a program designed to give High School Students who are interested in making a career out of aviation the opportunity to accomplish their first solo flight in an airplane. This will be accomplished through a high-intensity two-week program consisting of ground and flight training. There are three academy sections offered each summer.
The Commonwealth of Virginia is providing funding that permits the Pathways Flight Academies program to be offered free of charge to participants.
The application for the Academies is now closed. Applications for Summer 2020 will be available in Nov. 2019.
