With a prominent pilot shortage in the U.S., South Texas College’s Continuing Professional and Workforce Education Department will be hosting a Summer Aviation Camp to spark an interest in flying for future pilots. 

 

The four-day camps will take place at the STC Technology Campus in McAllen and is intended for elementary, junior high, and high school students. 

 

The camp will touch on the subjects of remotely piloted vehicles (drones) and flying fundamentals. Junior high and high school participants will take a field trip to the McAllen Airport for a “Hangar Hangout.” The hangout will give participants an opportunity to meet with a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified instructor.
