RALEIGH, N.C. (April 8, 2010) - Army ROTC Cadets from Wake Technical Community College and NC State University got first-hand experience in a military training exercise today. The Air Assault Training Operation involved two UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopters from the NC National Guard. The helicopters transported 65 Cadets on four separate lifts between Dorothea Dix Hospital in Raleigh and the Wake Tech Main Campus. The exercise was designed to train the Cadets how to safely board and exit a Black Hawk during a practice mission to occupy an area.

Each Black Hawk transported up to 10 Cadets and instructors at a time. The landing zone at Wake Tech was in the rear of the campus in a gated 43-acre parcel located on Old McCullers Road.

Through a partnership with NCSU, Wake Tech offers Military Science courses in support of the U.S. Army Reserve Officer Training Candidate (ROTC) program. After completing their first two years at Wake Tech, Cadets are eligible to transfer to the NCSU ROTC program.
