Check out these amazing cadets from the Plano Mustang Squadron who recently took their first Orientation Flight on a Gipps Aero GA-8 Airvan out of McKinney National Airport! Thanks to the support of the Addison Eagles Squadron, these cadets were able to experience the thrill of flying and gain valuable skills in aviation. We are so proud of these young cadets and can't wait to see where their passion for aviation takes them. Congratulations!
