Students were treated to airport tours, interactive exhibits, and aircraft displays including the Cirrus VK-30, Los Angeles Fire Department Air Rescue Unit, Childrenís Hospital Ambulance Service, major tenants TWC and Clay Lacy Aviation and much more.

Los Angeles Unified School Board Member Nury Martinez said, ìStudents had the valuable opportunity to speak with aviation and aerospace professionals, including VNY Operations, Airport Police personnel, LA Valley College, the Federal Aviation Administration, North Valley Occupational Center and many more about how to pursue a career in aviation.

ìWe thank our sponsors, exhibitors, VNY and the many volunteers who made Aviation Career Day possible. It is through exposure to educational opportunities such as this that our youth gain insight into the many career options available to them,” said Los Angeles World Airports Board of Airport Commission President, Michael Lawson.

Van Nuys Airport is one of three airports owned and operated by Los Angeles World Airports, a self-supporting branch of the City of Los Angeles, governed by a seven-member Board of Airport Commissioners who are appointed by the mayor and approved by the Los Angeles City Council.
