Island Air is offering students the opportunity to learn about aviation careers in a hands-on session.

The student Explorers Program launches Jan. 15 at 6:30 p.m. at Bishop Museum’s Atherton Halau. Students between the ages of 14 and 20 are encouraged to attend orientation with their parents to enjoy the 10 weekly sessions.

Program officials say students will learn about different aviation positions and learn from members of the Federal Aviation Administration, Transportation Security Administration, and Air Traffic Control.

“Island Air is proud to offer a program for youth in Hawai‘i that allows them to aspire to an exciting career in the airline industry,” said Island Air CEO Dave Pflieger.

This is the seventh year for the program.

Applications to the program will only be accepted at orientation and the program will be limited to 15 students.
