Nine members, a few of the Post 78 Advisors, and several parents were in attendance at the careers in aviation presentation by Mr. Mark Wiesenhahn and First Officer Mike Dereshkevich.
After showing the explorers a short, interesting video, Mr. Wiesenhahn began the first part of the presentation by briefly explaining different pilot careers. He also emphasized the need of pilots in both military and civilian applications.
Mr. Dereshkevich, a First Officer for Frontier Airlines, started his portion of the presentation with a brief overview of the aircraft that Frontier operates. He then described in detail the steps of how to become a commercial pilot—4-year college degree, certification, and many hours of flying experience.
