AFJROTC - Science of Flight

FHS AFJROTC cadets are studying the Science of Flight this year.  As part of the course of study, a new program has been introduced, the Cadet Orientation Flight Simulator Program, in the ROTC classroom!  After studying the principles of flight, cadets have now learned how to apply their knowledge by learning to fly the Cessna 172.  The profile they fly includes the five phases of flight:  takeoff, climb, cruise, descent and landing.  Many of the cadets have become proficient enough that they have also checked out as flight instructors, such and 2nd year cadet Michael Collings.  They are now teaching FHS staff members how to fly!  Next year, AFJROTC hopes to introduce a Cadet Orientation Flight Program with flights in the Cessna 172 out of the Stinson Municipal Airport, San Antonio.
