If You're Interested in Aviation...
Older Scouts thinking of pursuing an aviation-related career, or just interested in aviation as a hobby, should consider dual-registering with Explorer Post 747 in Paramus, NJ.
The Post is sponsored by Bergen Community College, where they meet in the college's Technology Building on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:30 PM. The address is 400 Paramus Road in Paramus.
The Post is co-ed and open to age 14-21 (or completed 8th grade). This is cool: The Post has access to all the college's state of the art flight simulators.
They have an ambitious program outlined for the rest of 2016, starting with working towards earning a Private Pilot Rating. There will be visits to airports and their control towers and facilities, and to museums, including the one at Rhinebeck with dozens of old vintage aircraft that can still fly.
