Sharing the world of aviation with 24 students in the Aviation Earth & Beyond Camp

This week, the Lumbee Tribe’s Project IndigeCHOICE team is sharing the world of aviation with 24 students in the Aviation Earth & Beyond Camp. The students explored the different careers within the aviation field. They toured the Raleigh-Durham Airport (RDU). During the tour, students learned about each department and how they work together for the operation of an airport. Several employees, including CEO Michael Landguth and Erin Locklear, Senior VP and General Counsel, spoke about the possible careers within the airport, such as ramp controllers, mechanics, electrical and maintenance team, fire dept, police, and baggage control.

The tour included a visit to Fort Liberty, formerly known as Fort Bragg. During their visit, students toured helicopters such as Apache and Black Ops, and learn about the aviation careers possible within the army.

The students also visited Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, Florida. They had the exciting opportunity to sit inside a simulator, in which they experienced what it is like for an astronaut during takeoff. Students learned the history of space travel and the important part that each department plays in the assembly of a mission.
