Welcome to the Career Eagles Aviation Initiative home page.  On this site you can learn about all of the youth aviation events happening in Central Ohio.

Career Eagles is a collaboration with The Ohio State University, the Knowlton Foundation and the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). Through partnerships with middle and high schools, Career Eagles will help promote careers in aviation to students, and will provide them with the tools needed to attend college and pursue those careers.  These tools will include mentoring, after school activities and scholarship opportunities.

Career Eagles will help to leverage the success of the current youth aviation programs such as EAA Young Eagles, Youth Aviation Adventure (YAA), Aviation Explorers and others by helping them combine their resources in an attempt to reach more students.
