Templeton Eagles Join Paso Bearcats In Learning How To Fly


[dropcap size=small]P[/dropcap]RHS aviation club has attracted all sorts of bearcats, even it’s high flying neighbors, the Templeton eagles.

 The Aviation club is run through PRHS, but also partners with Estrella Warbird Museum and Paso Robles Airport.  This informative club is all about aviation knowledge and lending a wing up for future flyers.  This includes guest speakers invited to PRHS, which share inspiring presentations and point eager students towards their aviation future. A notable speaker that visited PRHS’s Avation club was top gun graduate, Paul Oyler. He is currently enrolled in the Navy and rides a F35.  Other speakers from very respectable programs have visited and presented to PRHS students

Current restoration project being done by Aviation club

The club constantly sees students go through and maintains about 15 to 20 people throughout the school year and along with the Warbird Museum, it sets up flights for students and even teaches them to restore planes. This includes tearing down the plane to its bones and then rebuilding it and giving it a new paint job.

Pilot and PRHS bearcat, Luke Marion[envira-gallery id=”45776″]
Even a fellow Bearcat, who joined the club his sophomore year, has spent the past year earning his pilot’s license. Luke Marion, a junior at PRHS, visited a guest speaker brought on by the Aviation Club and from that point on has been literally flying high. He just recently passed the pilots test, to become a licensed pilot and is working towards being accepted into fighter pilot school. Marion believes that, “If you’re interested in any field of aviation whether it be the flying side or the more technical side give it a try because there’s bound to be something that interests you”
