    Charles Flowers High School Winning

    Flight Simulation 2015

    It was first class all the way to Southwest 

    Airlines Headquarters for the Charles 

    Flowers High School Winning Flight 

    Simulation team and parents".

     

    Four Charles Herbert Flower’s students (Joale Jupiter, Kevin 

    Sandoval-Perez, Jamie Stringfield and Benjamin Walker II) 

    were treated to all expenses paid, three days (Aug 3-5, 

    2015) tour of the Southwest Airlines Headquarters as the 

    grand prize winners of the Patriots Technology Training 

    Center Flight Simulation Competition 2015. The students 

    also won a free trip for their parents to accompany them to 

    Dallas. One of the highlights of the trip was having 4 

    Tuskegee Airmen accompanying them.   The students and 

    their parents enjoyed an excellent opportunity to hear about 

    the history of the Tuskegee Airmen and their careers in the 

    aerospace industry.  During personal mentoring sections, the 

    Tuskegee Airmen inspired the students “to never give up but 

    always work for your dreams”.   The students also were 

    escorted and mentored by several Southwest Airline Pilots 

    and employees.

     


    The three-day schedule included tours of the, Southwest 

    Airlines Headquarters Flight Operations Training Center, The 

    Frontiers of Flight Museum, Southwest’s social media 

    section, maintenance facility and the national operations 

    center where they monitor over 800 planes flying around the 

    world.   The students were impressed with the Southwest 

    Airlines facility.  They came away with two very strong 

    impressions that Southwest Airlines is the place to work and 

    the Tuskegee Airmen were awesome!
