Get ready to have the best day EVER! 

Alaska Airlines Aviation Day is structured like a career and education fair with an open format.  The youth participants will be free to choose the activities they want to attend throughout the day. Attendees will receive an “Activities Passport” at check-in, and we strongly encourage each participant to complete all of the items listed. When the passport is completed, they’ll exchange it for a special prize at the end of the day. 

The day’s activities will be hosted at the Alaska Airlines Flight Operations Training Center, the Alaska Airlines Hangar and the Alaska Airlines Hub building.  Participants will be transported to the various event locations by bus.
