Hudson Taking Flight

Eli Hudson, senior at Bluestone High School and The Governor's School of Southside Virginia, was one of only twenty-four students selected across Virginia for The Pathways Flight Academies. The program will provide opportunities for high school students to participate in immersive ground and flight training through the solo experience, while exposing them to a full range of aviation careers.

Four, two-week residential academies will be offered during the summer for the selected students who have shown an interest in and passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM), and have career aspirations to become a pilot. Students will undertake ground school and flight training that can culminate in their first solo flight at the end of the academy! Congratulations, Eli!
