Local student pilots complete ground school training

MERCER CO. AIRPORT (WVVA)- A local class of aspiring pilots completed their first step today in attaining their own pilot's licence. 

The student completed what is referred to by pilots as ground school.

This semester's ground school was a cooperative effort between Bluefield State College and certified flight instructor Chuck Elkins of Albatross Air Inc. 

Ground school is where future pilots learn about the various procedures and operations that flying entails.

Once student pilots complete the course, they are ready to take the FAA written exam and continue with their flight training.

If you would like to take flying lessons and learn how to be a pilot, you can give Chuck Elkins a call at 304-255-2717.
