The Foundation is involved with three primary events each year, by providing different levels of support.
- EAA Young Eagles First Flight Day
- National Championship Air Races
- Pathways to Aviation Speakers Forum
Young Eagles Day
The event takes place every June 7:30am-12:00pm. Anyone knowing children are encouraged to invite them to the event.
We’re well-versed in the Air Races, but the boycott lift will hopefully provide an exciting twist to the week-long event. We plan to support NAHI again this year, perhaps engaging NAHI’s leaders with our workshops and school visits.
The event continues to bring out the finest in aviation, aerospace, and air racing and will continue to get better. Tom’s idea of creating speaking events will continue to blossom. In fact, we’ve been approached by the Balloon Federation of America (BFA) to host Pathways at their tri-annual conference taking place during the same week of April next year. They’re looking for a keynote speaker for their Saturday evening banquet dinner. They’re also looking for an opening presenter, which prompted the following idea.
