What We Do
The annual Aviation STEM Day is the opportunity to bring together youth and young adults, primarily 11-18 years old, to show them the diverse career possibilities within aviation/STEM, including professional and recreational opportunities for flight, maintenance, avionics, aero-medical, drones, airport management and more. In addition to the annual one day event, our year-long mission is to provide hands-on activities for the personal discovery of that passion which motivates learning and the setting of goals. In the end, we hope to motivate young people to select, seek and dream possibilities that can lead to a satisfying and rewarding career.
- 2019, 350+ people attended the day event & 43 youth flew in an airplane; 2021, a two-seat RV-12 airplane built by 31 flew for the first time!

- Hangar full of hands-on education stations, aircraft and classrooms where youth can experiment with aviation.
