The NextGen Aviators Club is made up of young aviation enthusiasts whose primary purpose is to increase interest in Alaskan Aviation. The club is open to young adults interested in any aspect of Alaskan flying: piloting, aircraft mechanics, air traffic control, fabrication, and aviation management.
Together, we are growing Alaska's next generation of aviation professionals and enthusiasts.
What we do
- Scholarships (all aviation fields)
- Useful aviation seminars (i.e. winter flying 101, ski flying, float flying, remote survival basics, mountain flying, etc.)
- Meet other like-minded people at one of our gatherings
- Network with local aviation businesses and professionals (air carriers, Airframe and Powerplant mechanics, Certified Flight Instructors, collegiate programs, aircraft fabricators, etc.)
- EAA Young Eagles flights (free discovery flights for kids, click to learn more)
