Alaska Airlines Merit Badge Day

Aviation Day 2018 is May 19th, 2018!

Registration will open early 2018.


This program is considered a BSA High Adventure event. All Scouts attending must be a minimum of 12 years of age and bring a signed Blue Card to the counseling session. All requirements for the Boy Scouts of America Aviation may be accomplished during this program.

The event is free, however, pre-registration is required. Alaska Airlines Aviation Day is structured more like a career/education fair with an open format. The Scout participants will be free to choose the activities and spend as much time they wish at each category. There will be an “Activities Passport” issued at check-in and we strongly encourage each Scout to complete each item listed. Visit all the events/booths to get each item checked off by the volunteer counselors. When the passport is completed, present it to our onsite Merit Badge Counselors to be tested on the knowledge you have learned. If successful, you will earn your aviation merit badge and receive a special prize.

Activities Include:

  • Classroom activities: Aviation 101 and Aero Charting
  • Tour aircraft with pilots, flight attendants and mechanics
  • Build and test gliders
  • Meet FAA air traffic controllers, Port of Portland Police and Firefighters
  • Meet University and local Community College representatives
  • Experience a mock aircraft evacuation
  • And much, much more!
