EDUCATION

Aviation is a vital part of our country's commerce and supports thousands of dependent industries. Aviation outreach and education to our youth is one of the most impactful ways that we can attract new talent and ideas for the exciting future that lies ahead and provide support for the beginnings of the careers who will write that history.

A mile of highway will take you a mile down the road, a mile of runway will take you anywhere.

 

During the course of our week students receive a full-access pass to all things aviation in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul Metropolitan area - small group visits with Delta Air Line's 'Below the Wing' tour where students get to shadow employees on the ramp for a working flight, preauthorized visits to Minneapolis Air Traffic Control Tower, 'A Day in the Life' experience at an airline's flight attendant training facility and of course piloting their own aircraft all with certified flight instructors in gliders, helicopters, general aviation training aircraft, a special full-motion airline simulator time slot and much, much more.
