The Aeronautics Careers Education Academy is designed to allow high school students to experience facilities rarely open to the public.
In a partnership with the Six District Educational Compact, this annual program available this summer for 15 students entering grades 10-12 exposes students to a wide variety of career opportunities in the fields of aeronautics and aerospace engineering, including Air Traffic Control (ATC), professional pilot, aviation management, and aeronautical engineering.
