Bumble Bees, Airplanes Helping NOLA Minority Youth Soar

 "Aerodynamically the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway."

Mary Kay Ash, (1918-2001), pioneer for women in business


About one year ago, Captain Barrington Irving took off from Opa Locka airport inside the cockpit of Inspiration II, a plane built entirely by Miami high school students in the Experience Aviation Build & Soar Summer Program.


How cool would it be to be the program manager helping the minority youth of Baton Rouge and New Orleans build and soar?


That opportunity for the right person crossed my desk today. Contact name and email is George Moore gmooredtii@yahoo.com******** for more information and follow-up. Good luck!
