Salute to Youth
The AERO Institute® in partnership with NASA-Dryden Flight Research Center, participated in the 16th Annual Salute to Youth program at Palmdale Site 9. The Antelope Valley "Salute to Youth: the Career Connection" is a unique local event. For 16 years, this event has been sponsored by the business community, for about 2,300 high school junior students who explore career options and make contacts for senior projects. This event has earned a California School Boards Association Golden Bell award. Salute to Youth provides exposure to a variety of career fields in our local businesses. Volunteers from industry, government and community businesses attend to represent one of the eight designated career pathways. Individual vendors set-up exhibits, disseminated brochure information, conducted demonstrations, and displayed aircraft and vehicles. The AERO Institute® in partnership with NASA-Dryden sponsored 10 buses, provided literature on education programs, provided F-16XL flight simulator rides, and a NASA Test Pilot and Flight Test Engineer flew in an F-18 and signed autographs... >> More
