The mission of Youth Aviation Adventure (YAA) is to introduce young people to the exciting world of aviation, unraveling the wonder and mystery of flight in a high-quality, engaging, and educational program. It is YAA’s stated purpose to bolster the ranks of young people learning to fly and/or choosing careers in aviation so the United States can maintain a viable domestic aviation industry and continue as the world leader in aviation technology, training, and manufacturing.

YAA holds various hands-on educational and engaging programs throughout the year.
