Easton Airport’s Aviation Career Education (ACE) Committee is excited to announce the return of the “ACE Tent” to Easton Airport Day. The tent will house a variety of aviation flight schools, trainers, and pilots. Their goal will be to engage students and help them explore career pathways in aviation.
The ACE Tent was first introduced to Easton Airport Day in 2019. Students enjoyed the opportunity to learn about aviation from industry experts. The tent also served as the hub for event information, raffles, and Easton Airport Day merchandise.
The ACE Passport will task students with visiting the airport to learn about the variety of aviation businesses on campus. They will attend engaging aviation workshops, participate in airport tours, and other events at the airport. Students will capture their experiences through the passport, helping them track their progress and encouraging them to complete the program.
Students that participate will submit their completed passport with an essay about what they have learned through the experience. The goal is to have students be rewarded for their efforts by having their first powered flight experience funded through an ACE scholarship.
Stop by the ACE Tent during Easton Airport Day on September 25th and look for more information on the ACE Passport later this year!

“It’s my goal to get more of our kids interested in aviation” Easton Airport Manager Micah Risher said. “Our new ACE Passport will provide a self-paced program that will introduce students to aviation career possibilities that exist right here at home and within the region. Sundance’s sponsorship of the ACE Tent and new Passport program helps us to inspire more of our youth towards careers in aviation.”
