Dina Elosiebo believes “the sky is the limit” when it comes to a new Aviation Math program of which she is the administrator. Elosiebo, also a navigator with the West Virginia Air National Guard, recently made a presentation concerning the program that she calls a “new approach to learning” to the Helena-West Helena School Board.
The program, says Elosiebo, is still in the introductory phase in Arkansas but has been approved in Tennessee and already has been successful in Atlanta, Ga.
Elosiebo has her commercial multi-engine pilot’s license and has been flying since 1999. She explained that the program helps expose students from all over the country to a diverse way of educating and connecting what students are learning in the classroom to all of today’s work area.
The program hope to foster mentor relationships, help participants compete on a national level academically and emphasize leadership.
“Ultimately what they learn from this experience will be instrumental in anything that they do,” stated Elosiebo.
The program will introduce aerospace training, math conditioning, and character building while each student is evaluated for future opportunities. AMP is currently working with funding and is considered to be in the “talk” phase.
Elosiebo plans to re-introduce the program to the school board next year.
