Classroom To The Sky

Classroom to the Sky

If you are a Kindergarten – 2nd grade teacher, join us on September 28, 2024 for Classroom to the Sky specially designed for you!

2023-2042 Boeing Pilot and Technician Outline shows a global need for 649,000 new pilots, 690,000 new maintenance technicians and 938,000 new cabin crew members will be needed to fly and maintain the global commercial fleet over the next 20 years. 

Why should this matter to you? Because you could have that future aerospace professional sitting in your classroom. All they need is for you to create that spark to ignite their passion for aviation. Infusing aerospace concepts in and through your teaching can inspire the next generation of aerospace professionals. We want to help you do just that!
