TCHS AFJROTC Cadets Earn Their FAA Part 107 License

Three senior cadets in the AFJROTC program at TCHS–Mateo Franqui, Dominik Heintz, and Alex Antonakos–earned their Part 107 license through the Federal Aviation Administration. By passing this rigorous exam, they can operate Small Unmanned Aircraft (SUAS) commercially and in the national airspace system, opening tremendously lucrative employment opportunities. Their certification and licensing are the result of succeeding in the classroom through two years of dual enrollment classes taught and offered by the TCHS AFJROTC program through Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). The ERAU dual enrollment program continues to grow at TCHS and is open to all AFJROTC cadets who meet GPA requirements.
