Alaska Airlines Aviation Day 2017 – Saturday, May 6th
This FREE event is aimed at inspiring aviation dreams in the youth of Puget Sound communities. Aviation Day will provide the opportunity for young adults to learn in a classroom and hands on about career paths in the aviation industry and education possibilities for a successful aviation career.
Guided by Alaska Airlines and volunteers from the other sponsors, participants will be able to:
- Tour Alaska jets and “kick the tires,” see wheel wells and engines with mechanics.
- Visit the flight deck of a Boeing 737 with line pilots.
- Fly a 737 simulator
- Explore the complex world of jet airplanes with the Boeing engineers who design them.
Careers ranging from aerospace engineer to professional pilot will be discussed throughout the day. Participants will be able to explore how flights are planned, scheduled and executed. Training facilities will be open and engineers will guide attendees through the construction of aircraft. Several light aircraft and pilots will also be on-site to educate and inspire tomorrow’s leaders to take us into the skies of the future.
University and local community college representatives will explain their educational opportunities to help you achieve your goals in aviation and aerospace. Come and let Alaska Airlines employees show you how our Alaska Spirit soars to the skies and the commitment of our customers is more than just a career – It is who we are. Register with your sponsored youth group for an experience you will never forget.
