Mount Assisi Academy was invited to attend Lewis University’s Aviation Camp for girls. The camp encourages high school aged women the opportunity to explore all the exciting possibilities available in the field of aviation.
During this clinic, Haleigh Biernacki and the other girls attended a flight simulator class, learned the parts of the plane and their functions, and toured the tower for air traffic controls. Haleigh won a free hour flight with Pilot Megan. With the assistance of Pilot Megan, Haleigh was able to fly the plane over her Aunt's house in Plainfield. She really enjoyed seeing the view from the sky and hopes to attend more clinics at Lewis University.
