How Aviation is Giving Wings to Dreams in Chicago

This program helped me find my true passion which is aviation. I met some of my closest friends and gained a mentor in this program. The field trips were incredibly fun. I got to meet a black female pilot, and even look into private aviation companies.
I knew I wanted to be an engineer. Because of Aerostars I'm now working towards my Aerospace engineering degree. It's a great program to join. Even if aviation isn't your interest, the connections provided can get you acquainted with almost any field.
Ever since I was a child I wanted to be a pilot. As I grew older I began to think more seriously about it. I met some people related to Aviation but nothing more than a handshake and a few nice words ever came about. Because of Aerostar and because of the passion of Mrs Holmes I was able to see what was on the other side of the door and she opened brand new world to me. Because of Aerostar and because of her work, I am now only a few weeks away from becoming a certified FAA commercial pilot.
I became an AeroStar in 2013 right before my senior year of high school. I knew I had an interest in aviation but it wasn’t until I had the industry exposure that Tammera Holmes offers that solidified my career and academic decisions. Since then, she’s been a mentor to me, opening doors for receiving my pilot’s license, writing letters of recommendations for aerospace engineering scholarships and ultimately networking with airline representatives for employment. It is truly a wonderful program that if one is serious about, they can excel!
This program has made my son confident that definitely aerospace engineering is his future career.
