AV8RS - The Pilots of Tomorrow
Join our Active Teen Community
The seekers, the adventurers, the bold have always known it. It’s time to let the next generation in on the secret—aviation is for everyone! AOPA AV8RS, AOPA’s new youth membership is free for teens 13 to 18 years old.
Whatever your reason is for wanting to get more involved in aviation, AOPA can help. No one offers more real-life stories, information, hands-on resources, and expertise.
Parents/Educators: Have questions about AOPA, or the AOPA AV8RS program? Get more information about AOPA and the program.
Teens enrolled in Melbourne, Fla.-based Wings of Grace Ministries received free flight training and real-world life lessons.
Diving from 17,000 feet, the airspeed increasing to more than three times what the pilot is used to in a Cessna 172, the instinct to pull out of the back side of a 6,000-foot-vertical loop is premature and aggressive.
