The United States is and has been a leader in aviation. We are largely dependent on aviation for travel, cargo and defense. Come join members of the Civil Air Patrol as they trace the history of aviation and relate some of their own experiences. This two-session class will trace the important developments in aviation from its inception to the present. The first session will cover 1900 to 1950, and the second session will cover 1950 to present time. Members of the Collins H. Haines Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol will conduct the classes. The squadron is a composite squadron based in Milton, Fla., composed of adult (senior) members and cadets (ages 12-20). Participants will receive materials to go along with the presentations. Capt. Charles Tucker, Public Affairs Officer for The Collins H. Haines Squadron, will convene the class, and other members of the squadron will enrich the class with their experiences in aviation.
