CFAA STUDENTS TAKE FLIGHT: Jet Blue Flight Highlights Partnerships with Aviation Schools Across the Country

Walter Houghton Named Wright Brothers Master Pilot

LAKELAND, FL – (April 11, 2013) – Central Florida Aerospace Academy students recently boarded a Jet Blue flight that included approximately 100 students from nine aviation high schools and colleges in New York and Florida. The flight was designed to be an educational experience highlighting the partnerships Jet Blue has formed with these aviation schools to encourage young people towards careers in the field of aviation.

A possible partnership with Jet Blue is on the horizon for the Central Florida Aerospace Academy. Such a partnership would create opportunities for CFAA students to benefit from JetBlue's facilities, participate in internships at the airline, and position themselves for jobs in aviation when they graduate.

John Small, Senior Director of Workforce Education for the Polk County School Board, welcomes a potential collaboration with Jet Blue.

"We'd love our 350 students to be part of the JetBlue experience," Small said.

Visiting students toured the school district's Central Florida Aerospace Academy and participated in the Sun 'n Fun Fly-In before flying back to Orlando.
