Aviation Exploring Post established for interested teens

Sept. 21, 2012

Teens and young adults interested in aviation are invited to attend a kick-off meeting for a new Aviation Exploring Post being established in Pierce County.

The meeting will be held Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Pavco Flight Center at the Tacoma Narrows Airport, 1110 26th Ave. NW, Gig Harbor.

“Aviation Explorers will be able to develop and operate this post to meet their interests,” said Aviation Exploring Post Committee Chairman Tom Jones. “Participants could decide to explore aviation careers, take field trips to Air Force bases, museums and air shows, or take orientation flights in a variety of aircraft. It will be a hands-on group for those that enjoy flying and airplanes.”

Participants must be 14 to 21 years old and must have completed the eighth grade. The membership fee is $24. The post will be based at the Tacoma Narrows Airport.

“An Aviation Exploring Post focuses on career opportunities, leadership experience, life skills, citizenship and character education,” said Howie Nelson, Post Advisor. “If you are interested in furthering your aviation knowledge, we encourage you to get involved with the post.”

Parents are also invited and encouraged to attend the Sept. 26 meeting.

For more information, contact Tom Jones, Post Committee Chair, at (253) 219-7655 or Howie Nelson, Post Advisor, at (253) 225-5998. Visit to learn more about aviation exploring.
