In the air with EcoFlight
EcoFlight students Farmington, NM.
Last week EcoFlight invited me to work with college students from Colorado and high school students from Red Cove on the Navajo Nation.  EcoFlight is an organization out of Colorado providing overflights for educational, scientific and media purposes.  I have worked with them before.  They are great folks.

For several of the Navajo students this was their first experience flying.  They had the opportunity to see their homeland in a new way.

The week of aerial tours and on the ground meetings and discussions gave the students a new perspective on energy development in the United States.
