FVTC helping feed demand for pilots

June 30, 2011

From The Northwestern: “FVTC helping to feed demand for pilots, which is only expected to increase”

Joe Arnold remembers his first flight.

He was three years old and the blue airplane was big enough to seat him, the pilot, his dad and his stuffed animal, Birdy. While Birdy got the front seat view, Arnold was bitten by the flight bug.

His fascination with flight continued as he was growing up, first with a learn to fly day at the local airport in Wisconsin Rapids when he was a teenager and continuing on to six years of flight school – sandwiched around two military deployments. After graduating from the aeronautics program at Fox Valley Technical College earlier this year, Arnold has now joined the staff as an aeronautics flight intern and is helping teach the next classes of hopeful pilots to fly.
