Piedmont Airlines is bringing a love of aviation to elementary school students

First Officer Garrett Ray recently visited Lowery Road Elementary School in Fort Worth to participate in their school’s Career Day event. Ray spoke with approximately 150 students from second through fifth grades about the education needed to become a pilot, why he chose his profession and what being a pilot is like.

FO Ray answered many questions from the students including inquiries about his favorite place to visit, where he flies the most and what first class is like. The students enjoyed learning about being a pilot and receiving their Piedmont coloring books, highlighters, stickers and wings. “It was a fun day,” said Ray. “I'm proud to work for a Company that provides the opportunity for their associates to give back to the community.  Who knows, we may have sparked the interest of a few future aviators.
