Do you have dreams of one day becoming a commercial airline pilot and traveling the
world? The Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC), in partnership with the
Commonwealth of Virginia, Liberty University, Averett University and the Virginia
Department of Aviation, is offering flight academies at no cost for high school students
statewide.

The Pathways Flight Academies will immerse students in learning to fly while discovering
the range of exciting aviation career opportunities available. Four, two-week
residential academies will be offered during the summer of 2019 for selected students
who have shown an interest in and passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, or
