"The student can learn at their own pace, and we're preparing and building a part-141 school where the student will follow very regimented flight curriculum," said Chief Instructor Bill O'Hara.

Students get STEM training through Raytheon
During Raytheon's daylong "Engineering is Awesome" program Monday in southern Arizona, students got a chance to see science, engineering, math and technology principles at work in robots, missiles, and electron microscopes -- and Raytheon got a chance to encourage the students who could become its future engineers. High-school students from around the region took part in the event, held at Raytheon Missile Systems' airport plant, and many said they came away inspired to study engineering. "You get a really good idea of what you're looking forward to," said high-school senior Charlotte Mitchell. Arizona Daily Star (Tucson)
