Aerospace Academy Launched to Meet Area Aviation Needs


An Aerospace Academy has been formed to give Tulsa area high school students an education in aviation, technology, and related fields. It will help meet needs of the aerospace industry and groups like the Air Guard. Colonel David Burgy is Commander of the 138th Fighter Wing. He says programs like the Academy will give students a head start to meet the rapidly advancing technology of the aerospace industry.

The Academy is the result of efforts by the city, aerospace industry, and educational leaders. The program begins this fall at the Tulsa Tech Riverside campus in Jenks.
