WACO Aviation Cadet Program

WACO Aviation Cadet Program

(Registration open through October 20, 2016)

WACO Aviation Cadets extra-curricular program is designed for students ages 10 – 16, who may be interested in pursuing a career in a technical field, like aviation. Motivated students will experience hands on aviation related activities and problem solving opportunities. Cadets will meet twice a month to work on an aviation project, to learn more about flying, or take a related field trip. An orientation flight and training in the WACO Flight Simulator Lab will also be part of the course.

A schedule of topics and events will be discussed and questions addressed at the kick-off meeting, October 4, 2016 at 5:30 pm. Registration forms and sign- ups will be available at the meeting and registration will remain open through October 20, 2016. Registration fee is $150 and the program runs October through May.

WACO is very grateful to Paul G Duke Foundation and Vectren for their support of this program and the Flight Simulator Lab, made possible through generous grants.

You may also call the WACO Learning Center at 937 335-9226 or go to for registrations.
