  • JROTC Visits Local Airports

    On October 16, 2018 Lt Col Kelly and SMSgt Reid traveled with 24 cadets on a field trip to the Concord Regional and Charlotte-Monroe Executive Airports. Those who went had an opportunity to learn about many general and commercial aviation career fields.  The first stop was the Concord Regional Airport, where they visited three main sites: a hangared $7 million Carolinas Healthcare System helicopter used for medical evacuation, specially trained firefighters and their truck at the fire station, and lastly the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) facility at the commercial terminal that serves Allegiant Airlines.  The next stop was the Charlotte-Monroe Executive Airport. Here cadets got to talk to the manager and learn how he runs the airport. They also climbed inside “The Tinker Bell,” a C-46 transport from World War II that resides permanently at the airport.

  • AFJROTC Takes Flight

    On October 24, Lt. Col. Kelly and SMSgt Reid accompanied 15 AFJROTC cadets to NC Air National Guard Base in Charlotte where they flew on a C-17 aeromedical evacuation training mission . A C-17 is a large cargo and troop transport plane used in the Air Force. As cadets walked to the plane, they saw several commercial takeoffs and landings up close at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. After a short safety briefing, cadets were allowed in the plane. After all cadets received ear protection, two were selected to sit in the cockpit for takeoff. The takeoff was thrilling, and when the plane reached cruise altitude, cadets were allowed to get up from their seats. It was a bright sunny day, and the windows offered a stunning view of North Carolina and our route down to Florida and back.  On the return, cadets flew up the Atlantic coast and passed over Savannah, Charleston, and Myrtle Beach. About every twenty minutes two cadets would be sent up to the cockpit to observe and talk to the pilots. At about ten minutes from landing cadets even flew directly over the Parkwood campus!
