Introduced by President Nathan Gage, our meeting speakers last week were Tiffany Getty and Francis Novak. Tiffany and Francis shared their passion for teaching the aviation program at Wellsboro High School. The program began when Tiffany, a chemistry teacher, was approached by Dr. Freeman 4 years ago, with the idea to start an aviation program to add to the school's curriculum and two years later, Francis, a 9th-grade science teacher joined her. Wellsboro is the only high school in Pennsylvania offering an aviation program which was developed by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. It is a four-year curriculum that is STEM accredited and counts as a science credit. Not only does it introduce students to job opportunities as a pilot, but also aviation-related careers in engineering, mechanics, customer service, business management, and unmanned aerial systems. The program works with the Wellsboro Canyon Pilots' Association to help promote flying and offers the students, some of whom have never flown before, a ride in an airplane. They are also working on a project to potentially build an electric-powered ultralight airplane. Plans are currently underway to raise the funds and work on logistics for the project. So far, they have acquired half of the $30,000 to get started. The Wellsboro community is blessed to have a high school that offers so many unique and interesting programs to our students. Tiffany and Francis encourage everyone to spread the word about the aviation program and to encourage kids to become involved.
