Scouts Earn Aviation Merit Badge

Some local Boy Scouts added a new badge to their collection. Nearly two dozen scouts earned their aviation merit badge Saturday as they learned from top notch Sheppard airmen. The group learned more about map reading, aerobatics, and flight planning. And after it was it over it was clear some of them may have found their calling.

"Several of them are interested. Overall its just to educate them on the world of aviation and the other career opportunities that are available, but we have seen some interest in military aviation as well today," said Adam Pollock, 2nd Lt. Student Pilot.
