The Airolina Young Aviators Program (AYA) is an aviation STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) program for students ages 14-17 often from low-income families. The program provides professional introductory flight training, mentorship and a Basic (Private) Pilot Certificate.
High school students, grades 9 through 12 will be offered a comprehensive four-year flight-training program. AYA will encourage student involvement in aviation and AYA will seek to increase the numbers of high school graduates, minorities, and women FAA certified pilots prepared to pursue the next steps to enter the workforce of the future in commercial aviation.
