Aviation Explorer Post 8

Explorers are mentored and trained by our Advisors to become leaders in their community and career. Leadership opportunities for youth include officer positions, public speaking opportunities, and volunteer opportunities. We also offer hands-on experiences and a real world education covering all facets of the aviation industry. Activities include field trips, guest speakers, maintaining our own aircraft and hangar, safety lectures, washing planes to subsidize costs and so much more. Aviation Explorer Post 8 is chartered with the Jayhawk Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Population(s) Served

Ground school is offered to all Explorers during the school year and an intensive ground school program is offered in the summer. We use Jeppesen and Gleim curriculums to prepare youth for the FAA Knowledge Test, and then provide resources for youth to earn their Private Pilot license. We also offer orientation flights to our members and fly to as many fields trips and activities as possible.
