Alaska Airlines Aviation Day is structured like a career / education fair with an open format.  The youth participants will be free to choose the activities and lectures they want to attend throughout the day.  There will be an “Activities Passport” issued at check-in and we strongly encourage each participant to complete each item listed.  To get it completed by the days end each participant will accomplish each activity and get that item checked off by the volunteer counselors.  When the passport is completed you’ll exchange it for a special prize at the end of the day.
The activities and lectures for the day will be at the Alaska Airlines Flight Operations Training Center, the Alaska Airlines Hanger, and the Port of Seattle Airport Conference Center.  The participants will be transported to the various event locations by the Port of Seattle busses and their drivers.
