Charles A. Lindbergh captured the hearts of Americans during his successful non-stop flight from New York to Paris in the "Spirit of St. Louis" on May 20th, 1927. This famous American Aviator purchased his first airplane and learned to fly on the grounds of what is now South Georgia Technical College in May of 1923. Lindbergh purchased a Curtiss JN4 "Jenny" from the World War I training center that later became Souther Field Airport. Lindbergh soloed in that "Jenny" over the South Georgia Technical College site after only one week of training. The runway where Lindbergh practiced takeoffs and landings is now launching other young people toward their educational dreams. South Georgia Tech salutes the accomplishments of Charles A. Lindbergh and encourages students to soar toward their hopes and dreams.
