Airborne Systems is proud to host learning sessions for the Camden Youth Aviation Program. This program is geared towards youths with a passion for aviation, good grades, and a dedication to expand their knowledge and pursue a career in the aviation field. These careers range from pilots, aircraft manufacturing, aircraft maintenance, law related services, such as Sky Marshalls or Drug Enforcement Agents, and much more.
Vincent Mignot, our International Business Unit Manager at Airborne Systems, has given several presentations and tours to the Camden Youth Aviation Program. During their visits, the members of the program watch videos to learn about our company and our numerous products and capabilities. They also, receive a detailed tour of the production floor, watch packing demonstrations and even get to try on parachutes. It is truly inspiring to see the children leave here with a smile on their face as we shape the young minds of Aviation!
More information about the program:
“The Camden Youth Aviation Program tries to show the young people of Camden and Southern NJ all aspects of aviation and that there is more to life than what they see in their neighborhoods. Also by introducing them to aviation, we are hoping to give them something to dream about and to inspire them to rise above the limits of their environment. Our goals are to use aviation to show our young people 1) reasons to stay in school, 2) the practical applications of STEM, 3) exciting and rewarding careers open to them, and 4) role models truly worthy of respect.
The program is open to all Camden and Southern NJ youth who are interested in aviation. Participation in the Camden Youth Aviation Program is not limited to any one group or organization, but welcomes all young people who are interested in aviation. Additionally, the Camden Youth Aviation Program tries to act as a resource to schools and youth groups to make them aware of the educational aviation resources that are available to them. The Camden Youth Aviation Program was established under the auspices of the former Camden Police Foundation and the Diocese of Camden’s Community Relations Advisory Board. The Camden Youth Aviation Program is incorporated as a Non-Profit Corporation in the State of NJ and is a certified 501(c)3 non-profit charity.”
