ORANGE COUNTY...Atlantic Aviation recently hosted students from Edison High School in Huntington Beach at their general aviation facility at John Wayne Airport. The students, juniors in High School, are enrolled in the school’s Academy of Sustainability and Engineering (ASE), which is a part of the Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) program at Edison High School.

 “The aviation industry offers endless opportunities for students interested in careers focused on math, science and engineering.  It was exciting to host so many young men and women from here in Orange County and share with them some of the many career paths available in the aviation profession,” said Kirsty Fournier, Atlantic Aviation SNA General Manager.   

 The 26 ASE students met with fixed-wing and helicopter pilots to discuss a variety of topics including physics, engineering and aircraft maintenance. In addition, students interacted with ground operations staff and others who play critical roles in airport operations.  Two planes and one helicopter were staged in Atlantic Aviation’s hangar to allow students to tour the aircraft and experience firsthand the different types of aircraft active at Atlantic’s John Wayne Airport facility.

“Atlantic Aviation always appreciates the opportunity to meet with young people interested in aviation careers.  Based on the young men and women we met from Edison High School’s ASE program, I’m confident that Orange County’s aviation community will be well-trained and ready to lead our industry in the future,” said General Manager Kirsty Fournier.
