Conrad Lamb, a 2013 Springboro graduate and completer of the Warren County Career Center Aerospace Academy, put his Aerospace Academy $6,000 flight scholarship to good use. He now holds his private pilot license and is working on his instrument license. He is taking the Professional Pilots and Airway Science Degree program at Sinclair Community College and also working at the Wright Brothers Airport. One year after high school graduation, Conrad is well on his way to realize his dream of becoming a commercial pilot.
“I have my private pilot’s license, I am working in the field and studying aviation,” he said. “And it is all thanks to the Warren County Career Center. I didn’t know anything about aviation before I entered the program.”
After finishing at Sinclair, he plans to continue his schooling through Embry Riddle’s online classes and becoming a flight instructor for Sinclair to build his hours for his commercial license requirements.
“Conrad Lamb exhibited very strong characteristics of discipline, attention to details and a willingness to strive toward educational and personal goals that are the foundation of successful aviation professionals,” his WCCC instructor, David Miller, said. “In addition to excelling in his actual and simulated initial flight training in the high school program, he has ‘the right stuff’ to become both proficient and successful in his career path as a professional pilot.”
