In Flight Museum offers
aviation career education
12, 2001] Heritage
In Flight Museum, located at Logan County Airport, Lincoln, has
received a grant that will permit an expansion of their educational
program for high school students. A current program has helped
students examine employment opportunities in aviation. The grant
from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will make possible
an expanded project named Aviation Careers.
the expanded program, a group of aviation career cadets will be
selected. They will meet at Logan County Airport for a two-hour
session once a month from October 2001 through May 2002. During this
phase, the cadets will become acquainted with the history of
aviation, what makes airplanes fly and the development of aviation
during the first 100 years.
to 12 of the aviation cadets will be given free tuition scholarships
for a one-week aviation career workshop during June 2002. The
workshop will meet three hours a day Monday through Friday. While
the aviation careers workshop is built on the love of flying, it
recognizes that many people are involved in addition to pilots. It
also recognizes that, in common with other careers, most aviation
careers require completion of high school, and many careers require
a college degree. The focus of the workshop is on the
career-selection phase of the educational process. During this phase
the cadet will become acquainted with the airline industry,
corporate aviation, military aviation, recreational flying and the

of the experiences in the aviation careers project will be carried
out on a one-on-one basis between students and museum personnel.

attracts a membership of pilots, engineers, educators and retired
military personnel. Many of these members are involved in airport
activities, since numerous volunteers are needed to keep the museum
Heritage In Flight Museum concept, simply stated, is to provide an
educational experience that is conducive to learning, recreation and
fellowship. Its activities are aimed at kindergarten through
retirement homes. The activities are built around aviation
experiences and are designed to combine learning and fun.
Experiences include visits to the museum, flying events at the
airport, meetings, and aircraft and vehicle maintenance.
In Flight Association members have monthly meetings at 1 p.m. on the
first Saturday of each month. The annual election of board members
