Mentors

Our mentors include aerospace professionals from all fields in the air and space industry. If you want to get involved in aerospace, we have someone who has the background and experience to guide you to your goals.

If you’re someone who is, or has been involved in aerospace, think about who opened doors, provided opportunities, and offered sound direction and advice to you. We invite you to join us as we help show the way to the next generation.

After looking at some of our mentors at the bottom of the page, come back up and tell us about yourself we’ll try to match you up with someone in our network. Or if you would like to become a mentor yourself, let us know and we’ll get in touch.
