George Charles Allen of Worcester Regional Flight Academy (All-New Episode)

George Charles Allen of Worcester Regional Flight Academy
Program: 
Date: 
Sunday, December 16, 2012 - 10:00pm

Worcester Regional Flight Academy, established in May 2010, is a family-owned and -operated Part 61 flight school located at the Worcester Regional Airport. The Allen family, which owns and operates the school, is strongly committed to bringing general aviation and Worcester’s airport into a more positive light by making a presence within the city and the surrounding communities. 

To achieve this, the Academy supports and works closely with local businesses, news media and community organizations, colleges and universities, and technical/vocational high schools, to create a web of mutually beneficial partnerships. The Allen family is particularly interested in helping young adults to discover and explore various aviation careers through the Flight Academy’s Youth Programs, and to assist them in cultivating their interests and realizing their potential by making aviation as affordable as possible.

In an all-new episode, Steve D'Agostino interviews George Charles Allen, founding director, vice president and chief financial officer of Worcester Regional Flight Academy. He has been living and breathing aviation since he was a toddler, experiencing his first flight in a Cessna 150 at Robertson Airport in Connecticut, at the age of three. He began logging lessons when he was six. He’s also a teacher, published author, classical pianist and independent scholar.
