Aviation Explorer Post 445 is hosted at AFI Flight Training Center located at the Fullerton Airport in Fullerton,CA
Aviation Exploring is a career based program for young men and women who are between 14 – 20 years of age.
Aviation Explorer posts help youth gain insight into a variety of programs that offer hands-on career activities. For young men and women who are interested in careers in the field of aviation, exploring offers experimental learning with lots of fun-filled, hands-on activities that promote the growth and development of adolescent youth. Aviation Explorer posts also help youth attain their Career Achievement Award.
Post members will participate in a number of fun and exciting activities such as Private Pilot Ground School, Orienatation Flights, attend Air Shows, vist Commercial Airplane Maintenance Facilities, Air Force Base tours, and more... Check out our calendar for upcoming events.
The Explorers recently did some indoor skydiving at the Skydive Perris facility as well as a 3 hour flight aboard a C-17 while performing air refueling from a KC-135.
Post Members are now preparing to fly to Oshkosh, WI to help run the Oshosh AirVenture Airshow. This is the biggest airshow in the world.
Post 445 is always on the look out for great youth as well as adult members to join the post. We've double the number of active members in the last year. We seem to be adding a couple new members every month, so come visit us at our next meeting or event.
