MOJAVE – At the July 16 board meeting of the Mojave Air and Space Port, Dr. Allen Peterson reported on the success of Flight Test Camp, which was held at the National Test Pilot School (NTPS) located on airport grounds.
Peterson, a board director and President/CEO of NTPS, stated that the school made a substantial investment in the training of several local high school students who attended the inaugural flight test camp (FTC) from July 8 through 13.
A three-day reduced version of the FTC will be offered for teachers from the schools involved before the end of the year, said Peterson, who called the camp an unqualified success which drew great praise from students, parents, and educators.
The NTPS goal for FTC was to introduce and excite young people about flight test engineering as a possible course of study/career path, to highlight potential career opportunities in flight test and engineering available in local high tech organizations, and to put a boost into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programs at local schools.
