Aviation is an excellent STEM educational platform. On top of STEM, or as I like to say STEAM (A. for Aviation) it also provides history lessons, communication skills, and financial planning with a very real practical application that builds solid life-skills.


Some people learn to fly before they learn to drive! You can start flying for the airlines at age 21, and through 2025, it is predicted that every major airline will continue to be hiring!



I wanted to fly since I was a child. To me, it seemed that aviation was omnipresent but somehow unreachable. Twenty years ago, I found a way to get started. Twenty years later, I’m a flight instructor, and I own my own airplane! I’m continually amazed at how much of our lives are impacted by aviation and how people who have no formal training in aviation are getting involved at a revolutionary rate.

With a passion to help others, I have set out on a journey to share my knowledge and experiences to inspire you to the unlimited possibilities in aviation THAT ARE HAPPENING RIGHT NOW. You can join this movement and form new alliances that will shape the future of one of America’s greatest freedoms – Aviation!

When I read the first draft of Jeff Jorgensen’s Open Air: How People Like Yourself Are Changing the Aviation Industry, I was struck with how he had written a superb guide with very practical examples of resources and advice for anyone who is contemplating a future in any area of the exciting aviation industry. I had never before seen so much useful aviation material between two book covers! Major general Carl G Schneider
