Some local teens got a taste of what's it's like to be a pilot recently.
They were introduced to aviation at the Colorado Springs airport by an organization called "High Hopes for Teens."
School counselors refer kids who they consider to be 'at risk.' The teens learn to fly planes and with it comes self esteem and success.
Six teens were selected for a scholarship program earlier this year. Otherwise, training for a private pilot's license would cost about $10,000.
