Pathways to Aviation informs, inspires, and engages aviation’s next generation.

Career Symposium was a major success!

  • Five days dedicated to celebrating aviation.
  • Twenty activities promoting specialty areas, organizations, people, and career tips.
  • A large collection of schools, students, job seekers, industry leaders, and recruiters.

The Career Symposium opened many doors of opportunity, connected students and job seekers to many possibilities, engaged executives from all parts of the US, and generated national attention.

Many thanks to leaders who dedicated time from their busy schedules to share stories, provide insight, and make connections. These leaders represented, The Lawson Group, Click Bond, Aviation Workforce Solutions, AAR Corporation, Duncan Aviation, American Airlines, Raven Career Development, 21.Five Professional Pilots Podcast, United Airlines, Air Force Academy, Delta Airlines, Nevada Air National Guard, Carson City Airport, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics, Sanders Aviation, RIX Industries, AviNation Magazine, Aviation Technician Education Council, Choose Aerospace, National Business Aviation Association, and The Perlan Project.

Since most of the activities were conducted during school hours, they were recorded. The 40+ high schools, trade schools, and universities with which we’ve recently established relationships have been airing the recorded sessions to their students. We’ve also made them available to schools throughout northern Nevada. You’re also invited to watch. Simply go to
