CARLSBAD, CA (Oct. 15, 2014) – Southern California Aviation Association continues to advance business aviation in Southern California. And the dynamic group is bringing the region’s young people along for the journey.

The event will offer an exclusive opportunity for young people to learn about and become involved in Aviation Exploring. Aviation Exploring is a unique and invaluable hands-on program that helps pave the way for young men and women ages 14 to 20 to launch careers in the exciting aviation industry.
“We are extremely excited about this event,” said SCAA President Craig Foster. “It represents an opportunity to introduce young people to experienced, passionate veterans in the Southern California aviation industry. Not only are we helping expose a whole new crop of area youth to the industry we all love and work in, but we’re helping pave the way for the next generation of workers, leaders and innovators. It’s a big deal, and we’re proud to be a big part of it.”
At this exclusive event, young attendees will have the opportunity to network with pilots, flight instructors, air traffic controllers, flight attendants, aircraft mechanics and more. It will also serve as an entryway to additional Aviation Exploring events and functions for interested participants.
