Alaska Airlines Merit Badge Day
Aviation Day 2017
May 19 & 20, 2017
Alaska Airlines is proud again to host the 7th annual Aviation Day in Portland, OR!
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.
