Franklin County teachers fly to learn about aviation

MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. (WHNT) – Several Franklin County teachers participated in an educational program hosted by the Muscle Shoals Civil Air Patrol (MSCAP) on October 11.

MSCAP members taught lessons on aviation and then discussed how to enhance interest in STEM-related fields. After class, teachers were invited to take flights to see how their lessons applied in real life.

Public affairs officer Phillip Norris told News 19 that there’s no better way to learn flying than to do it yourself.

“As in any teaching situation, it’s best to have a teacher who has actually seen it in action, the practical application of the fundamentals they’re trying to teach in the classroom,” Norris said.

Norris said one of the main goals of MSCAP is to improve aerospace education. He said they hoped this program would have long-term positive effects on the students of these teachers.
