Airbus program to fly students over Wichita

A group of middle school students will get a chance to fly over Wichita this week to mark the conclusion of a mentoring program.

The program, called Flying Challenge, culminates Thursday at the National Center for Aviation Training. The agenda that includes flights over Wichita, a robotics lab, a paint lab and a radio controlled airplane demonstration.

Flying Challenge is sponsored by the Airbus Corporate Foundation and coordinated by United Way of the Plains. It is designed to inspire students who are at risk of not graduating from high school or pursuing college. It seeks to inspire them to pursue degrees and a career in the aviation industry.

The program matches Airbus and Wichita State University engineering students with 80 students at Brooks Middle School in Wichita.
