Aviation Venture Crew plans program for local youngsters

An Aviation Venture Crew here in Pagosa Springs?

If you recall, we were chartered last year by the airport under the guidance and permission of the Board of County Commissioners .

This year as the new school year is beginning we are looking to increase our membership and afford young adults, men and women ages 14-20 an exciting program.

We will be exploring the aviation industry in all facets — with tours of Stevens Field and surrounding aviation facilities in Durango and Farmington.

Additionally, we’ll explore aviation maintenance, air traffic control, rotorcraft/helicopters, aviation careers, aviation physiology and much more.

Local youngsters interested in the Aviation Venture Crew are invited to attend a meeting at 6 p.m. Sept. 10, at Nick’s Hangar.

For information, contact Bill McKown, Aviation Venture Crew committee chairman, at or (970) 799-1920.
