About 50 girls and boys ages 12-18 (and their parents) attended the 2016 Cadet Program Open House on Sunday, January 17 at our headquarters at Skypark Airport. The open house was for anyone interested in aviation, aerospace education, emergency services, and volunteering in their community. Visitors had a chance to fly in our simulators, tour an airplane, take a spin in our Barany Chair, try their hand at some fun aerospace activities, and meet our current cadets.
The Medina County Skyhawks is looking to add 8 new cadets to our ranks. The open house was intended to show local teen volunteers what the program is about, and generate interest in the Basic Cadet Training course starting Feb. 14.
