  • 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.
