SISTERS, OR -- Aviation students at Sisters High School have an opportunity to win free flight lessons from a professional. Advanced Flight Dynamics and the Sisters Eagle Airport, are sponsoring an essay contest. Students are asked to write about why aviation is important to them, or how it has changed the world.
A panel will select the two best essays. Those winners will then receive instruction from local pilot Mike Klock. "It's helping promote aviation. We need more young people in aviation," he tells KBND News. "We'll provide something exciting for the students do, maybe motivate them more. Two students will win hour flights with me in our aerobatic airplane."
Essays are due by April 15 and winners will be announced May 25. The winning flight lessons will occur at the Sisters Airport in June.
