Rockford high school students get a chance to take flight

Posted: Updated:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Jefferson and Guilford high schools are offering an elective for students in aviation.

Part of the Embry-Riddle Academy, the class allows students to use a Microsoft Flight Simulator to give them flying experience.

Freshmen can take it for a test drive at the expo to see if they are interested in enrolling. Students receive college credit for taking the course.

This is the second year RPS is offering the program to students.
