No question I personally had a good time being around so many airplanes, hanging out in flight simulators, and taking tours of different types of aircraft. But that all pales in comparison to the passion that I saw coming from the people that helped out and the excitement that most of the youth expressed. Sure, there were quite a few young adults who were trying to act like they were too cool for that sort of stuff, but there always seemed to be something to make them crack and appreciate aviation. It is amazing to see organizations, like Alaska Airlines, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Boeing, and more put in so much time and energy into creating such an event. There are some truly wonderful AvGeeks out there looking to help build the next generation of AvGeeks.
