Young Eagles & Teacher Flight Rallies

Summer-Fall, 2016:  Starting in May, the Flight Annex and Wings Ramp were the scene of monthly Young Eagles and Teacher Flight rallies.  Scores of Young Eagles and dozens of educators received personal flight experiences from incredible volunteers who shared their love of aviation.  It was hard to know who had more fun, the volunteers or participants, but one thing is for sure; the flights were a life-changing experience for many of the participants.  In one rally, two former astronauts who had six flights in space between them – Dr. Ron Sega and Steve Lindsey – came to share their memories of special teachers with assembled educators.  They each said these special teachers launched them toward careers with NASA!
