The second day of the trip took the cadets to the Patuxent River, Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, MD. They visited a helicopter squadron, a tilt-rotor squadron, a Global Hawk squadron and a classified research and development lab. The cadets had the opportunity to “fly” a number of simulators!

The extended time with their instructors, Major Petruzziello and Staff Sergeant Strong, as invaluable as well.
