Aviation is exciting! Many educators have discovered the powerful learning effects that aviation has on students: The excitement of aviation motivates them to learn and participate more actively in their education. Aviation is rewarding! Air transportation offers a great future for those interested in the challenges of tomorrow. Aviation is demanding! It demands of its workers technical excellence, the ability to think, to communicate and to perform in a fast-paced environment. The Bureau's Aviation Education Program is part of an effort to plan for the challenges of tomorrow's air transportation systems. To prepare for the future, we help educators prepare young people to become the next generation of aviation practitioners.
