Center of Excellence Student Outreach

The Partnership to Enhance General Aviation Safety, Accessibility, and Sustainability (PEGASAS) is the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA’s) Center of Excellence for General Aviation. As the name indicates, one of the themes of PEGASAS is “accessibility”, and the FAA’s solicitation for the Center of Excellence for General Aviation described the need to implement outreach efforts. The set of tasks described in this proposal use general aviation-related outreach activities to reach students at various levels. This aligns directly with both the PEGASAS theme of making general aviation accessible and with the FAA desire to have Centers of Excellence implement outreach efforts. The PEGASAS Center of Excellence Student Outreach project will be split into multiple tasks that may be started at differing times dependent upon funding availability. The objective of this project is to provide various mechanisms for students at all levels Pre-K through graduate school, including undergraduate and graduate students working on PEGASAS projects, to engage with PEGASAS and the FAA. These outreach activities will provide for dissemination of PEGASAS research findings and activities, will allow General Aviation to motivate school-aged children towards Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education and career paths, and will allow PEGASAS students to work alongside FAA colleagues.
