ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The purpose of the Ron Alexander Youth Aviation Program is to provide aviation interested youth guidance, mentorship, and the opportunity to restore and maintain aircraft in exchange for flight time towards a sport pilot or private pilot’s certificate.

Since the founding of the program, the Youth Aviation Program has recorded the following accomplishments:

  • 35 student participants
  • 11 students have earned their private pilot certificate
  • 1 student has earned his A&P certificate
  • 21 students have soloed
  • 5 planes built
  • 20 scholarships awarded

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

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 Ron Alexander Youth Aviation Program affords participating students a path to achieving their goal with minimal expense.
