Published In Midwest Flyer Magazine Online October/November 2021 Issue

OSHKOSH, WIS. – EAA AeroEducate, a bold new program that opens a wide spectrum of possibilities for young people interested in aviation, was officially launched on July 26, 2021, at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, initiating an interactive, educational, and engaging experience for young people ages 5 to 18. AeroEducate’s web-based resource provides clear, age-appropriate pathways to aviation and aerospace engagement, and even career paths. A multitude of turnkey, easy-to-use aviation-themed activities are available for youth, as well as for teachers and EAA chapters.

“AeroEducate takes the best elements of EAA’s successful youth engagement programs and adds online access for youth, their parents, and their teachers,” said Jack J. Pelton, EAA CEO and Chairman of the Board. “In addition, comprehensive programs from top companies worldwide lift the potential of the program even higher with access to resources in aviation, engineering, business, and more.”

AeroEducate is available for youth, teachers, and chapter leaders to enroll as beta test participants. The beta testing will ensure that resources are fully available, easy-to-access, and well-integrated. That includes contributions from the corporate supporters: United Airlines’ Aviate, Siemens Digital Industries, and Airbus.
