Blue Line Aviation Sponsorship helps NC Science Olympiad Students take flight
(Raleigh, NC) –Blue Line Aviation, LLC, commits to sponsor Aerial Scramble, an exciting new trial event at the State NC Science Olympiad competition. The event encourages students to apply the concepts of physics in the real world by requiring students to assemble and test fly a rubber-powered model plane. Funds generously supplied by Blue Line Aviation will be used to purchase the rubber-powered model planes for qualifying students. According to NCSO Executive Director Kim Gervase: “Partners like Blue Line Aviation help NCSO bring concepts to life for our students. This event will help students to explore the science of flight and some will find their passion to become pilots someday!”
Blue Line Aviation is the region’s leading flight training provider with a modern fleet of aircraft with advance technology, conveniently located at the RDU Airport above Signature Flight Support. As part of their growth, they have recently opened their Professional Pilots Training Center in Morrisville, all of which to properly train and to prepare the pilots of tomorrow beginning as young as 12 years old. In mid-2018, they will expand their high-quality customer offerings to include charter services.
