Missouri University of Science and Technology’s department of mechanical and aerospace engineering is sponsoring a Private Pilot Ground School this fall through Missouri S&T’s distance and continuing education program.
The 20-hour course will be held from 7-9:30 p.m. on Monday and Thursday evenings from Oct. 14 through Nov. 7 on the Missouri S&T campus.

The course will be taught by Dr. Robert B. Oetting, professor emeritus of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Missouri S&T.
