Moody pilots are getting ready for Moultrie

June 10, 2004

Moultrie - Moody Air Force Base pilots will be flying in unknown territory soon.

Instructors are expected to take to the air over Moultrie, above Spence Field, in mid-July.

Pilots need to get used to the area before teaching students on the new training grounds. But, they still need to install radios, train employees and fix a leak on a hanger.

Moody hopes to host an orientation tour to get the Colquitt County community used to the noise of the planes.

The new training sight in Moultrie will reduce congestion over Moody Air Force Base.
