Participants also meet representatives from the airlines, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), FedEx, Airport Fire and Police, local colleges with aviation programs, and more.
Students meet at the airport for a total of five sessions: three hours a day, one day a month from January – May.
Outreach to each school district goes out at the beginning of the school year. Interested students should reach out to the college & career specialist in their district.
