Last Friday our kids had the opportunity to visit JFK and tour the inside of an airplane cockpit ✈️ all thanks to @jetblue! We also spoke first hand with one of their pilots, flight attendants and operations manager! Sincerest thanks to the #JetBlueFoundation for their generous grant in support of our STEM programs.
