There’s currently more demand for workers in the aviation sector than there are workers, and introducing aviation to younger learners is essential for inspiring interest in the many lucrative career paths the industry offers.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (PRWEB) November 11, 2022
The Symposium is a forum dedicated to sharing insights, ideas, and best practices among educators interested in developing aviation STEM programs, and the only event in the nation that focuses on aviation and aerospace content for high school teachers and students.
Jeff, an aviation educator and specialist in flight simulation, will represent Gleim Aviation on an industry panel that will discuss the recommended ground instructor certificates for aviation educators, useful resources for students who are interested in learning to fly or pursuing an aviation career, and best practices for Aviation STEM programs.
The panel will also cover the ins and outs of the FAA Knowledge Test procedure, including the FAA Airman Knowledge Testing Matrix.
“I’m very excited to have been invited to speak at AOPA’s Aviation STEM Symposium,” said Jeff, Gleim Part 141 Chief Instructor and Flight Simulation Specialist. “There’s currently more demand for workers in the aviation sector than there are workers, and introducing aviation to younger learners is essential for inspiring interest in the many lucrative career paths the industry offers. Pilots are the most visible, but the aviation industry requires more than just pilots—it takes hundreds of roles working in tandem to ensure thousands of flights occur safely above us each day. The Symposium is helping address a very real need being felt by the industry. I’m proud to represent Gleim there, and I want students to know that there is a place for each of them in the aviation field.”
