KTRK based Mountain Lion Aviation hosted local Civil Air Patrol cadets to an evening of pizza and full motion flight simulator time.

Mountain Lion Aviation's Captain and CFI Dave Tranquilla and Possibilities Officer Sarah Rossi, treated the 5 cadets ages 12-14 to a fun and informative evening.

The cadets practiced take offs and landings in the $80,000 Redbird MX2 flight simulator, programmed as a Cirrus SR22. Captain Dave said he definitely saw some talented future pilots in the group! (Photos by: Marc Lamb)
