The State Department of Transportation is authorized to make available to community colleges offering actual flight experience as part of the regular curriculum a basic insurance program and to ensure that adequate supervision and precautionary measures are taken by the flight school operators contracted to provide services for community college students. The governing board of any community college district offering actual flight experience as part of the regular curriculum may participate in the basic insurance program provided by the department, and pay from the funds of the district a pro rata share of the cost of the insurance program.
