Five local teens have completed an eight-week ground school course to prepare them for flight training and certification as private glider pilots.

The course was offered at no charge by Hood River Soaring, an Oregon non-profit dedicated to helping young people discover their potential by learning to fly. HRS Member Mike Bamberg, a certified flight instructor and FAA examiner, volunteered his time to teach the course. HRS provides scholarships and work-study programs for youth with aviation ambitions.
