    Do you want to fly?

    If so, your first step off the ground begins with Aviation Ground School.

    Starting in Summer 2014, The Spaatz Association will sponsor 10 cadets to attend the annual Aviation Ground School hosted by the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps and the Association of Naval Aviation.

    This program covers navigation, meteorology, Federal Aviation Regulations, instruments, radio facilities, procedures, and theory of flight — all of the requirements needed to take the FAA Private Pilot written examination.  All entrance fees, lodging, food, and materials are covered by the Association. You are only responsible for transportation to and from the event.

    Where: Riverside Military Academy, Gainesville, GA

    When: 27 July to 2 August 2014
