Safety Officer Visits School

Barbara Gordon, a Test Pilot Instructor and Aviation Safety Officer at the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School, visited the fifth grade class at St. Michael’s School in Ridge, Maryland, on Friday, Dec. 6.

After speaking with the students, she answered their questions about the mission of USNTPS, the types of aircraft that the students fly there, and how Gordon came to be where she is today. Afterward, she had lunch with a group of students who had achieved mastery in math facts, extra writing assignments, and/or public speaking over the past month.

The students especially enjoyed trying on the helmets that Gordon brought and were excited to learn about the unique educational opportunities available to them through the United States Naval Academy.
