    I like where you're going with this GA Heroes series. Sounds like these kids got the VIP treatment.

    I don't think a lot of high school students realize the opportunities available in aviation, and its wonderful to see people like Ron providing such great exposure. Hats off!



    Thanks for sharing this great story. I might only be a renter and a new, young pilot, but I'd love to be a part of something like this in our area. Keep it up with this movement and hopefully we can get more involvement nationwide!

    It's up to all of us as pilots to actively get the next generation involved in flying. There's far more competing for their attention than when I was a kid. The only way to break through that clutter is to get involved personally to expose young people to aviation.

      Photos taken at EAA Airventure 2007 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. There's no way to adequately describe how wonderful Oshkosh is merely by seeing pictures and reading about it. Oshkosh is Mecca for pilots, and you owe it to yourself to get there at least once in your life and spend several days.
