Event: Legacy Flight Academy “Eyes Above the Horizon

Eyes Above the Horizon ™ is a single-day outreach program that aims to develop and foster an interest in aerospace careers through flight introductions, mentor-ship, and immersion into the rich history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen. Students are inspired to see beyond their familiar circumstances and find the motivation to excel in their academic and career endeavors. The program features the robust participation of aviation professionals, educators, and support from numerous partners. To better reach youth from under-represented groups, this unique and impactful program is free to all participants.

Boeing will also be supporting with their interactive hands-on DreamLearners table/booth sharing information about careers at Boeing and our aerospace industry and skills needed for careers at Boeing including soft skills and ethics.
