Once again, Van Nuys Airport is hosting its annual Aviation Careers Education (ACE) Academy for interested middle and high school students. The summer educational program is open to all middle school and high school students with priority given to students in the neighboring areas of VNY. Students are selected to participate in the program based on their desire to learn about aviation. This weeklong motivational program is designed to educate students about airport operations at both VNY and Los Angeles International Airport, as well as career and technical opportunities in the aviation industry.
“For young people interested in aviation, there is nothing more exciting than spending a week of their summer vacation learning directly from experienced individuals in the field, including pilots, veterans, mechanics, engineers and aviation professionals,” said Diana Sanchez, VNY public and community relations director. “This unique program offers students a first-hand look at aviation careers and provides an opportunity to meet and network with professionals to gain insider tips on entering the industry.”
Mark your calendars for the Summer 2018 academy:
July 9 – July 13 Middle School (grades 7th – 9th)
July 23 – July 27 High School (grades 10th – 12th)
ACE Academy is one the airport’s many educational outreach programs that benefit local residents. Interested students are encouraged to apply early. For application information, please contact the VNY Public and Community Relations office at (818) 442-6526.
