ABOUT THE PROGRAM

In 2013, the Candler Field Museum’s board of directors established the Candler Field  Youth Aviation Program with the purpose of sharing knowledge of aircraft-related subjects with young people who have a keen interest in pursuing a career in aviation. Since the founding of the program, the Youth Aviation Program has recorded the following accomplishments:

  • 35 student participants
  • 11 students have earned their private pilot certificate
  • 1 student has earned his A&P certificate
  • 21 students have soloed
  • 5 planes built
  • 20 scholarships awarded

HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS

Under experienced adult guidance, students are taught the skills of restoring, repairing, and maintaining aircraft. Students interested in learning how to pilot an airplane can qualify for one hour of flight instruction for every 10 hours of program participation, and time logged in the student’s maintenance logbook can be applied toward the minimum hour requirements for an A&P certificate.

This program is very structured, and participating students must have a strong desire to learn. Regardless of the aviation goal, the Candler Field Museum’s Youth Aviation Program affords participating students a path to achieving their goal with minimal expense.

HOW TO JOIN

Interested in joining the Candler Field Museum’s Youth Aviation program? Participants must be between the ages of 14 and 20 years old and successfully complete the admission process, which includes a written application and interview.
