Technical Training for Youth

Our volunteers learn technical skills, management techniques, aviation history, and other related subjects. For those who show capability, dedication, and interest, we also have a flight training program. As any of our volunteers will attest, this is not a “free flight training” program, as a considerable investment of time, energy, and character will be spent by the volunteer before the flight lessons begin.

Most importantly, the desire to participate must come from the individual, not his or her parents or advisors. In our experience, the program is fascinating and thrilling for those with strong interest.


We Provide Training and Education to Young Adults

The Port Townsend Aero Museum youth mentorship program has been central to our operation from the beginning. We have worked with young adults from across the Puget Sound region, including several from outside of Washington state. Our teenage volunteers come from an amazing variety of backgrounds and families.

The main requirement for participation in the program is strong commitment and desire to learn. Regardless of age, all volunteers at the museum are treated equally. We expect responsibility and consideration in exchange for teaching skills that are sure to help a teenage volunteer grow into a successful young adult.
