|West Point and ROTC cadets graduate today|
Ten West Point and 10 ROTC cadets will graduate from UND Aerospace today, Aug. 8, after completing a four-week helicopter flight training program. Each training day consisted of academic studies and hands-on flight instruction after which they earned a students pilot certificate and logged enough hours to solo.
A group of 20 West Point cadets had graduated earlier this June. This initiative is a continuation of an agreement established in 2003 between the UND and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point to train cadets to fly Army helicopters. To date, UND has trained 124 West Point cadets and 10 ROTC cadets.
