This Springfield Public Schools program is in partnership with Ozarks Technical Community College and Premier Flight Center.
According to Springfield Public Schools website, “Fly SPS is a new program starting in August 2023 that will provide students instruction in aviation and the opportunity to earn their private pilot’s license while earning high school and college credit.

Upon successful completion of the two-year program, students can continue their associate degree in aviation, earn a commercial pilot’s license or pursue other careers in aviation. Potential aviation careers include commercial and airline pilots, co-pilots and flight engineers. “
