Horizon Air / Alaska Airlines Aviation Day

In cooperation with Horizon/Alaska Airlines, earning your Aviation merit badge is easier than ever. Come out for the fourth annual Aviation Day for the chance to learn the basics of aviation by exploring the principles of flight, aircraft instrumentation, airport and hanger facilities, and local career opportunities. This is an annual Meriting With the Experts event held in May. Admission is limited to 156 Scouts.


Guided by Horizon Air, Alaska Airlines, and Scouting volunteers, Scouts will be able to "kick the tires", see the wheel wells with mechanics, and view the flight deck of a DASH 8-Q400. Scouts will look into the guts of a Turbo Prop engine and take a tour of Portland International Airport with current experts in the field.

 

Career Opportunities


The Aviation merit badge event will provide the opportunity for Scouts to learn first-hand about career paths in the aviation industry from becoming a flight attendant to air traffic controller. Pilots and engineers will teach flight principles through the construction of a flying model aircraft. Pilots will be on-site with their light aircraft to educate and afford an up-close cockpit experience.


Age Restrictions

The aviation event is open to registered Scouts and venturers, ages 12 and older. This event is aimed at inspiring aviation dreams in Scouting youth. The 2014 Aviation Merit Badge Event is a one-day event with longer hours.

Merit Badge Completion

 

The Aviation Merit Badge is very technical and challenging to earn in one day. We do not require that the Scouts complete any of the requirements in advance of the event, however, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE the Scouts to obtain, read and be familiar with the contents of the Aviation merit badge book -- specifically, the information for requirements 1a – 1e. This will provide the Scouts with the best possible opportunity to complete the merit badge at the event.

 

Event Hours: 7:00am – 6:30pm

 

Check-In: 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM
(For security reasons – any Scout arriving after 8:00am will not be admitted to the event)
