Western Massachusetts Wright Flight
A Barnes Airport Support Group Educational Program
The mission of the Western Massachusetts Wright Flight Program is to educate students from Grades 7 to college level to the history of aviation, its future, the significance of aviation in the development of technology, its global impact, and the many careers in the aviation industry.
The program emphasizes the importance of setting goals, developing plans to attain those goals, and understanding the need to develop skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The program also seeks to recruit and integrate students of diversity into the aviation industry.
This is an exciting program culminating in the students flying a plane with a licensed pilot.
