Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Practices. Topic S06-05. Promoting Aviation Career Education in High Schools and Community Colleges

Some airports and industrial aviation concerns are becoming involved in the promotion of special schools or curricula to prepare high school or community college students for careers in aviation (flying, maintenance, operations, ATC, manufacturing). An example cited in ACRP Synthesis 79 is the aviation academy at Lake City Gateway Airport in Lake City, FL. Research is needed to collect examples of such programs and explore the many opportunities that airports have to contribute to the next generation of aviation professionals.
