If you live on campus, you are probably used to hearing jets come in and out of our campus. For our last Aviation Career Conference, however, we were paid a very special visit. An ERJ-145 commercial jet from the American Eagle fleet paid us a visit to show prospective students what they could be flying one day.
This was the largest jet to land here at Lewis since we brought in our 737 after it was donated by United in 1999. It was flown by Captain Javier Medina and First Officer Leslie Treppa. Medina is a regular at the Aviation Career conferences and wanted to take his presentation to the next level.
As I said before, these aviation conferences are invaluable to prospective and current students alike. If you are ever considering a career in the aviation industry, I really encourage you to attend one!
