Take Flight to Fund Aviation Education and Careers Programs

Pathways to Aviation and its programs are graciously funded by business leaders, community members, foundations, corporations, industry executives, and trustees to advance the organization's mission.

Pathways to Aviation generates funding to:

  • Coordinate field trips for students to visit airport and aviation businesses;
  • Facilitate aviation instruction to students;
  • Host tours and hands-on activities for young people;
  • Conduct career-planning workshops for high school and college students;
  • Match aviation career-aspiring students with industry mentors;
  • Provide scholarships to those pursuing careers in aviation;
  • Inspire more job creation in Nevada;
  • Support additional outstanding aviation-related non-profit organizations and activities;
  • Foster great appreciation for the history of aviation.

With each donation, we're able to affect a young person seeking aviation as a possible career. The funds foster the creation of pathways by informing, inspiring, and engaging aviation's next generation.
