Floresville High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadets are studying the science of flight this year. As part of the course of study, a new program has been introduced in the classroom, the Cadet Orientation Flight Simulator Program.

After studying the principles of flight, cadets have now learned how to apply their knowledge by learning to fly the Cessna 172. The profile they fly includes the five phases of flight: takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, and landing.

Many of the cadets have become proficient enough that they have also checked out as flight instructors, such as second-year cadet Michael Collings. They are now teaching FHS staff members how to fly!

Next year, the Air Force Junior ROTC hopes to introduce a Cadet Orientation Flight Program with flights in the Cessna 172 out of Stinson Municipal Airport in San Antonio.
