The day after Thanksgiving, two young men from California, Jacob Zuckerberg and Alex Huang took off in a private plane for a cross country flight. They were flying to meet a member of the Air Force that was serving as a mentor for his pilot training. They planned to visit the Air Force Academy in Maryland. This meeting would be a wonderful opportunity for these young men to put together some of their flight experiences and learn more about the exciting world of fighter planes.
The next day, their Warrior Flight Team, flew in an L-39 trainer aircraft alongside an airplane made by the P 51. Their goal was to visit local schools, give presentations to pilots, and visit aircraft manufacturing facilities. The team is reaching out to veterans across the country in an effort to offer them the support and help they need when they integrate into modern society.
This group of volunteers has also been busy collecting funds for their next project. They are hoping to raise enough money to fly with retired military pilots and their spouses throughout the year. The hope is that each of these veterans will be able to share their love of flying with someone who may be a better candidate for pilot training. These pilots will be matched up with someone who is a better fit for flying a variety of different types of planes. The hope is that this will provide a great example for young people in high school and college to follow.
For now, they are happy to meet everyone and serve as guest lecturers at local airports. They know that the more they do to promote themselves and raise money, the better chance they have at becoming successful. They plan on making it easier for people to donate money to them online. Once they have raised enough money, they will be able to purchase everything they need outright. Their ultimate goal is to eventually provide low-cost aircraft and training for all ages.
Many of the students who become involved in Warrior Aviation find that once they get into the training, they really like the pace and the atmosphere of the program. It’s very regimented and strict, but that does not mean that it isn’t enjoyable. Students can expect to go through rigorous training, but they also have the flexibility and the ability to decide their own pace. They can take a refresher course whenever they feel ready, but they can also take a more intensive course if they choose. This allows them to continue to develop even after they have completed the initial training. Every student is given the opportunity to learn new skills and expand their knowledge at their own speed.
Being part of Warrior Aviation is a wonderful experience for any student. This program only accepts the best students and provides them with an amazing support system. The students enjoy their time away from the usual stresses of life and are often surprised how much better they feel once they are able to focus solely on their efforts. This is a great way to help students mature while they are still young. By dedicating themselves to learning and using their talent to win wars, these students will be able to use their knowledge in every aspect of their lives from technology to art to finance.
