How to Apply for the Young Aviator Program

After discussing this program with your parents--and hopefully getting their approval-- the next easy step is to apply. Just click here on Application, and the form will come up. Then, fill it out, print it and mail it in. Also, include two things: a check for $25.00 addressed to Young Aviators. It will help cover our interviewing and processing costs and verify that both you and your parents are committed. Second: a copy of your birth certificate or proof of US citizenship. Our address: Young Aviators, 3239 North Green Bay Road, Racine, WI 53404. When your application is received (make sure we have it no later than May 16) we will send you a confirming e-mail message. Later we'll contact you to schedule an interview. The class list is finalized by the first of June.


It is our procedure to interview all applicants and their parents. Applicants must be 14 - 18 years old at the time of the program. If you are too small to see over the instrument panel-- sitting on a phone book is just not the right answer! Where you live can also be a key issue. Some of our local donors prefer that we only select students from the Racine and/or the Southeastern Wisconsin area. We respect that, but we have made a few exceptions.


In addition, be aware that our program is limited to just twelve students. This means that competition for "each seat" will be intense. It also means that what and how well you write when filling out your application...and how you interview...will be very important. So try hard and do your best. It will count.

"What's it going to cost me?" a parental voice was heard to say.


Sure, the first questions parents often ask is "How Much?" $3000, is the full cost short answer.


 "It Depends!" Is the long answer.

It has always been one of our main goals is to keep our program affordable. So how do we do that? Well, we spend much of our time each year searching for generous donors and supporters to provide the necessary funds to keep our program alive and thriving. Thankfully, our efforts have continued to pay off. Here's your 73% off coupon.

2017 will be our 10th year. During that time we have learned from our graduates that our community and our schools are producing outstanding boys and girls. We see them every year. We're convinced that our teens represent more than just "potential." We see them to be clearly on track to be among tomorrow's leaders in virtually every career field and line of work, including physicians, business professionals, engineers, scientists and teachers.
