The Kansas City Business Aviation Association (KCBAA) was honored to provide the St. Michael the Archangel Catholic High School Aviation Program with a gift of $7,000 to be used toward a new flight simulator. The presentation was made during the KCBAA’s annual luncheon on Friday, December 7th, 2018 where attendees had a chance to hear from the program instructor Howard Schneeberger as well as current student Hayden White.

Hayden White, a Sophomore in St. Michaels’ Aviation Program, spoke of how the program has had a positive impact on him as a third-generation pilot. Hayden stood in front of an array of projects created during his coursework, including a wind tunnel and vacuum chamber. St. Michaels was chosen to be a part of the AOPA High School Stem Curriculum starting the fall of 2017. Under the program, AOPA releases a high school curriculum to select schools, giving students an opportunity to enroll in a year-long aviation course.

The KCBAA is an organization formed to give back to the local aviation community and to enhance communication among those involved in business aviation within Kansas City and surrounding areas. Please contact the KCBAA if you know of other opportunities or events that will help promote aviation in the community. You can reach the KCBAA at info@kcbaa.org.
