A STEM Resource for Students and Educators
The Aviation and Education Foundation is an IRS approved 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
Our mission is to provide access to and learning opportunities on actual aviation equipment so that students and educators may understand first hand the mysteries of flight. We hope this will spur the interest and imagination to get more people involved in aviation.
We are assembling a group of fantastic individuals to support our mission.
All persons involved are volunteers that donate their time and resources to benefit the community.
