Help with Juvenile Fiction Title About Flying Children

When I was in grade school (I think about 1976 or 1977), our teacher read a story (not sure short story or book) about a group of kids that learned to fly. I remember that they played some sort of arial wargames. Does anyone know the title, as I would really like to read it again, and possibly share it with my child. Thank you for your help.

Probably not it, but it sounds like the War School part of Ender’s Game.
