Virtual Aim High Flight Academy targets diversity, inclusion improvement

The Air Force Recruiting Service’s Detachment 1 hosts the Virtual Aim High Flight Academy. The Virtual AHFA, allows teens to connect with mentors and work toward getting their private pilot’s certificate, and ultimately a step closer to becoming an Air Force pilot. The Virtual AHFA has two main phases. During phase one, students meet once a week virtually with the Det. 1 team and select mentors and guests. In phase two, students work to complete their private pilot certificate at a local flight school while paired with a mentor. Programs like the Virtual AHFA try to reach students who may otherwise not have an opportunity to be exposed to aviation. This exposure allows the Air Force to reach under-represented areas that can help improve diversity by targeting youth who traditionally don’t have access to aviation. (Courtesy screenshot)
