Aerospace Education Special Presentation

Join us this week for a special Aerospace Education presentation by Maj. Jerry Civalleri. The program will consist of wide screen photos and a narrative describing his overnight deployment on the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70).  Carl Vinson was conducting several weeks of complete war time simulation and was located about 250 miles offshore from Mexico.

Major Civalleri was delivered on board by a tail hook cargo and personnel delivery aircraft known as a COD.  His tour group was permitted access to every space on the carrier except the nuclear power plant.  The tour included flight deck and bridge observations during both day and night operations.  He lived in officers quarters, ate with the pilots in the officers mess and observed a preflight briefing in the pilot ready room.

Don’t miss this one of a kind presentation prepared from a visitor’s point of view.  It was a very intense non stop 36 hour event.  You will find it to be very interesting!

We'll see you there!
