The Sky’s the Limit in Aviation
Designed to raise awareness of the awe-inspiring opportunities available for future careers in aviation, LAX Aviation Career Day educated students about and encouraged them to explore the various career paths that could make their futures soar. The event introduced students to flight attendants, pilots, and aviation law enforcement professionals. They were given the chance to learn about the array of aviation programs offered by nearby colleges, tour a variety of aircraft, engage in interactive exhibits, watch live demonstrations and participate in other exciting activities.
The second annual LAX Aviation Career Day provided enrichment to students from schools as close as the LAX area and as far away as Anaheim. Schools that participated in the event include STEM Academy of Hollywood, Roosevelt High School, Manual Arts High School, West Adams Preparatory High School, El Segundo High School, Saint Bernard High School, Inglewood High School, Culver City High School and Canyon High School Aviation Academy in Anaheim.
Inspiring the Future of Aviation
By 2031, it is projected that the aviation industry will experience a steep decline in qualified aviation maintenance technicians, pilots and other industry professionals. By introducing students to the various paths that can open doors to a new horizon for their futures, enlightening them about the wonders of the aviation industry, and encouraging them to follow their passion for aviation, it is hoped that not only will the industry demand be filled, but the futures of local students will take flight.
