Candler Field Museum, Inc.
Where history comes alive, and education lights the future.
In 2013, the Candler Field Museum’s board of directors established the Candler Field Youth Aviation Program with the purpose of sharing knowledge of aircraft-related subjects with young people who have a keen interest in pursuing a career in aviation. Since the founding of the program, the Youth Aviation Program has recorded the following accomplishments:
Under experienced adult guidance, students are taught the skills of restoring, repairing, and maintaining aircraft. Students interested in learning how to pilot an airplane can qualify for one hour of flight instruction for every 10 hours of program participation, and time logged in the student’s maintenance logbook can be applied toward the minimum hour requirements for an A&P certificate.
This program is very structured, and participating students must have a strong desire to learn. Regardless of the aviation goal, the Candler Field Museum’s Youth Aviation Program affords participating students a path to achieving their goal with minimal expense.
