Summer Mentor Program

Discover Flying!

In 2007 Caribbean Aviation Training Center saw the need to target the young minds from as early as nine (9) years to fifteen (15) years of age by getting them involved in a career in aviation. This saw the birth of our Mentorship Program.

The young aviators were exposed to all the various aspects of flying an Airplane, along with information on the various jobs being offered within our aviation industry. A tremendous amount of thanks must be given to Aircraft Owners and Pilot's Association who recognized what we wanted to achieved and gave us the necessary manuals and booklets which assisted us in getting the information across to the these young aviators in a very simple easy to understand manner.

At the end of this five week program, these young aviators had visited several aviation related industries to obtain first hand knowledge of the working environment which they would be exposed to. These aspiring aviators were each given the opportunity to take two family members flying along with an instructor, thus demonstrating what they had learnt over the five weeks of the mentoring program.

Thereafter a graduation ceremony was held and these young aviators were each given a Course Completion Certificate and an AOPA First Flight Certificate. This program has been such a success that Caribbean Aviation Training Center now offers four (4) scholarships per year from these Young Aviators to attend our advance Ground School Training Program. This allows us a tremendous opportunity of attracting future pilots to our industry.
