On behalf of the Aeronautics Flight Department at Fox Valley Technical College, we want to thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to learn about an exciting, new opportunity we have been working on for current high school students throughout the state of Wisconsin.
Up until this year’s COVID pandemic, the Aviation Industry was experiencing record pilot and aviation technician shortages. This never before seen demand for these exciting careers is about to ramp back up in 2021, and expected to continue well into the 2030s. Below is a brief overview of what Boeing forecasts.
We are exploring opportunities to help provide high school students with meaningful pathways to an aviation career within your local communities. This would allow respective high schools to have a pathway available to students and their families without increasing funding resources needed from the high school itself. As we explore these options, we are looking to gain some insight from current high school students to gauge their interest level in aviation. The survey will take less than two-minutes to complete. Our goal is to obtain this data back before Wednesday, December 16.
