SB)--Enid Public Schools Board members approved an expansion to the high school aviation program and made two hires during their meeting on Monday. The aviation program will be expanded through an agreement with a company called Tango Flight that will deliver parts to the school for the construction of an airplane by Enid High School students. Over a two-year period at a cost of $90,000, students will put together the plane piece by piece, learning the steps from reading schematics to ensuring the plane is FAA approved. The program will be a two-hour schedule block with a limited number of students, and an application process to join the program. Once the plane is completed, it will be taken to Enid Woodring Regional Airport, where FAA inspectors will ensure it meets all specifications before taking it on a test flight, with students who helped build the plane having an option to take a ride. The district will be reimbursed through the sale of the aircraft, and with the price of the plane likely to stay the same, the program will be able to start again with a new plane after the two-year construction period. EPS also made two hires during the meeting, as Shannon Crowley will be the new director of secondary curriculum and instruction, and Kim Brittain will be the new Longfellow Middle School assistant principal.
