"Adjust Your Altitude 2008" Coming October 17
On October 17, about 600 juniors and seniors from high schools
in Nebraska will be exposed to the many exciting and satisfying
career opportunities in the aviation industry. "Adjust Your
Altitude 2008" is an aviation career fair. It's open to exhibitors
from across the nation representing the aviation community.
The career fair is being organized by team members from
LNK-based FBO Duncan Aviation, the Strategic Air & Space and
Museum, and Lincoln and Omaha Public Schools.
"With the predicted technician shortage and a general decline in
interest in aviation with high school and college graduates, this
aviation career day is being organized as a long-term effort to
reverse this trend," says Rich Baeder, Manager of Government &
OEM Programs at Duncan Aviation. "Our goal is to educate students
about all of the unique career opportunities in aviation and pique
their interest in our industry."
Participation is expected from colleges/universities, aircraft
manufacturing and service companies, airlines, aviation media,
government agencies and military organizations.
The event will be held Friday, October 17, at the Strategic Air
& Space Museum, located off Interstate 80 between Lincoln and
Omaha, NE. Roughly 600 students will be bussed to the career fair
from the schools.
