Scouts who participate in the BSA Aviation merit badge will cover requirements for the merit badge during this program. Specifically, the Scouts will report early to attend a BSA specific ground school followed by activities that they can select from during Aviation Day to complete their merit badge. Additionally, this is a BSA High Adventure event and Scouts must be 13+ years old AND be at least First Class Rank. There will be no exceptions.

Scouts who participate in Aviation Day and complete their Activities Passport will cover the requirements for the Sky Badge and Aviation Patch.

YES! The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will be allowed at least two chaperones per troop. All other youth groups will be allowed a 10:1 ratio of youth to adults. We will set up a chaperone waiting area in the Flight Operations building. Additionally, the chaperone passes will be transferable allowing for chaperones / parents to switch off and to observe Aviation Day events.

Yes, all students must be chaperoned by members of their youth group.  Alaska Airlines Aviation Day is NOT providing chaperones.

For those adults who are not chaperones, you can wait in the parking lot at the check-in building or at the many restaurants around the airport or at the Southcenter Mall.

This will depend on youth groups not filling their slots or participants cancelling prior to the day of the event.
