AEFCO Visiting Speakers

Throughout the years, especially during the Aviation Summer Flight Program, AEFCO has been honored to have visiting

speakers support our program by sharing their life stories with students. Those experiences include their career choices

as well as life challenges they faced. They provide an excellent source of motivation and inspiration for students.


Under Construction
