Local students from across the Mid-Michigan area are learning about careers in aviation while studying at the Wilson Talent Center's aviation academy in Mason. News 10's Lora Painter spoke with a flight instructor and students to find out how their diverse lessons help prepare them for what is expected to be a growing industry.

Julie Liberti, a flight instructor at the academy, said, "Getting into the air changes who you are. It is a fundamental change is fascinating to watch it happened to me, and I see it with the kids. I see them getting a maturity level that they've not had prior."
