More than 1,400 Students Explore Aviation Careers at
Van Nuys Airport

On April 5, more than 1,400 high school students, over 40 exhibitors and an array of static aircraft participated in the eighth annual The Sky's the Limit: Aviation Career Day hosted by Syncro Aviation, Van Nuys Airport (VNY) and The Valley Economic Alliance.

Congressman Tony Cárdenas spoke to the students about taking their future into their own hands by making the most of their opportunities. Students were treated to airport tours, interactive exhibits, and aircraft displays including the Cirrus VK-30, Los Angeles Fire Department Air Rescue Unit, Children's Hospital Ambulance Service, major tenants TWC and Clay Lacy Aviation and much more.  

LA Unified School Board Member Nury Martinez said, "Students had the valuable opportunity to speak with aviation and aerospace professionals, including VNY Operations, Airport Police personnel, LA Valley College, the Federal Aviation Administration, North Valley Occupational Center and many more about how to pursue a career in aviation."  

"We thank our sponsors, exhibitors, VNY and the many volunteers who made Aviation Career Day possible. It is through exposure to educational opportunities such as this that our youth gain insight into the many career options available to them," said Los Angeles World Airports Board of Airport Commission President, Michael Lawson.
