Rising Aviation Student Excursions

We believe in giving our students as many opportunities as possible to network, build new skills, and explore every facet of the aviation industry. To help accomplish this we take our students on a variety of field trips throughout the year and host a number of guest speakers on our campus.

These incredible excursions and events give our students a robust vision of all of the opportunities available to them in the aviation industry and beyond.
