Middle School Students Learn About Aviation

Middle school students in Savannah Chatham school district spent the day learning about aviation.

Over the next couple of days, students will get the chance to tour Travis Field for aviation awareness day. The students got the chance to actually go inside several military and civilian air craft. Aircrews and aviation professionals explained to students about the aircraft and answered their questions.

Organizers like Leanord Jones and Derrick Muhammad hope students will think about possible careers in aviation.

"I hope they come back with a good experience about coming out here to the 165th talking with both military and civilian pilots to get an idea about future careers in aviation," said Jones.

"We hope students will be more energized in their studies and be involved in math and science and possibly go into aviation," said Muhammad.

High school students will get their chance to tour the aircraft tomorrow.
