Our inaugural conference and trade show, kicking off on May 30th, will provide an immersive context to students interested in aviation, aeronautics, drone operation, defense, and related maintenance careers. This event will include hands-on activities for prospective students, simulators, intro level training, introduction to various company leaders, and presentation of employment opportunities that could be available to them through various certifications.
“At this event, school administrators, students, and industry stakeholders will get a first-hand look at the aviation and associated maintenance career pathway resources that are now available through the outstanding work of our partner organizations,” said Dr. Larry Nulton, Aerium's Chairman. “We want school administrators and counselors to see our vision of creating a next-generation hub of aviation professionals right here in our backyard.”
“Thanks to this collaboration, the capabilities of our aviation program have been rapidly expanding, and the Aerium Summit will give us the chance to demonstrate this to teachers and students," said Brother Marius Strom, Director of the Center for Aviation Maintenance and Education at Saint Francis University. “Last month SkyWest Airlines donated a CRJ200 airframe to the Center, which will give us even more ability to provide our students with invaluable hands-on training.”
“It’s no secret that the aviation industry is facing enormous workforce challenges. A retirement wave was already starting to form with pilots and technicians and then came the pandemic which made matters even worse. We need more groups and events like these.” said Anthony McCloskey, PennDOT’s Bureau of Aviation Director.
