A one day event designed to bring Vermont student & workforce population into close connection with aviation experts – Goal is to expose these individuals to exciting aviation career opportunities while providing information on what’s required to engage.

Technical Exhibits:  Provided by Vermont aviation experts & businesses will highlight different aviation skills, explain what’s involved & how one might “get involved”.

Mini-Classes:  20 minute classes by local experts in VFA’s new classroom. A mix of topics-of-interest to both novices (basic aerodynamics, navigation, use of IPAD for aviation…) and licensed pilots (aerobatics, multi-engine flying, advanced vertical flight…).

Aircraft on Display:  A host of interesting displays including F16 Fighting Falcon, aerobatic, homebuilt & amphibious aircraft, Jet Car…will be “weather dependent”.

Flight Simulators:  VFA will operate its three different units (FMX, CR-12 & Redbird) to demonstrate how technology enhances training & give students an opportunity to “fly”.

Airplane Rides:  Weather permitting, will be provided by EAA Chapter 613 for eligible Students at “no charge”.  See Experimental Aircraft Association’s web page for details:

  2. Hi-my daughter is interested in attending. Do I need to formally sign her up or just show up?
    She would like to take the plane ride. That is separate paperwork?
