Many people participating in our first aviation networking night answered a brief survey about the experience. We're pleased to share some of their responses.
We've been so committed to providing resources and opportunities to positively impact aviation's workforce, particularly in Nevada, that we're willing to test all ideas. We had a strong feeling that hosting networking functions might provide a bit of value, but did not expect such a great start.
Like every event we host, we want to know what our stakeholders and participants think, so that we can plan for the future. Well, responses to the post-networking event survey were so positive, we couldn't resist in sharing. Here's a handful of answers to the question "What did you like most about our aviation networking night?"
Responses from Professionals...

"The opportunity to speak to interested kids about multiple layers and aspects of aviation - not just being a pilot or engineer."
