Nominations for appointments to the Youth Access to American Jobs in Aviation Task Force, to develop initiatives to attract young people to aviation careers, are due October 30. The Women in Aviation Advisory Board nominations must be submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) by October 29.
The Youth Task Force is designed to encourage students to pursue aviation career and technical education courses in STEM; aviation manufacturing, engineering and maintenance at community colleges and trade schools. It will also develop pathways for apprenticeships and workforce development programs.
The women’s advisory board will be responsible for developing a comprehensive plan for strategies the FAA can use to encourage women to pursue aviation careers, coordinate efforts by airlines, nonprofits and aviation and engineering associations to facilitate support for women, expand existing scholarship opportunities and enhance training, mentorship, education and outreach programs for women.
Further details on the panels and information required to be submitted on the nominations can be found at the Federal Register at the links above.
