Our first Student Aviation Expedition hosted in New York this May was a resounding success. Highlights of the event included:
– Hands-on drone demonstrations through Vaughn college
– Behind the scenes with JetBlue including a visit to their tower and one-on-one with the chief pilot in the cockpit of an aircraft
– A STEM competition project, with a prize of a helicopter ride around the city
– TED style talks with industry experts
Our goal is to show participants what is possible. Our program is designed to aid in preparing students to be career/college-ready. Ultimately we want to help build a network of good citizens.
Students will benefit from a network of mentors including:
– National leaders in aviation & entrepreneurs
– Peer : peer
