#OTGYpsi: EMU's Aviation Program Reaches New Heights

Jan 9, 2019

What may came as a surprise to some residents is that Eastern Michigan University trains future pilots.  In fact, the number of students that have enrolled in the aviation program has increased significantly in the past few years.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg talk all about the program with Tom Simon, who is director of marketing and recruitment for the Eagle Flight Centre.
