Welcome to Our Site 

The goal of the program is to pique youth interest in STEM education by providing them opportunities in flight school and other activities that build self-confidence and team building skills.  Our founding purpose is to close the gap among youth who would not have these opportunities if it were not for YAEF volunteers, community organizations, and generous contributions from sponsors and businesses.      


We have served hundreds of youth through our aeronautical programs with the support of community.  Our programs have impacted children’s lives for the better and strengthened our local communities.  

A huge thank you to Fulcrum Concepts LLC for being Title Sponsor for our Young Wings Golf Tournament 


The Youth Aeronautical Educational Foundation is sincerely honored to be recipients of these prestigious awards. They symbolize the hundreds of youth that participated in YAEF's Aeronautical STEM Programs.  Our accomplishments are the results of students, volunteers and supporters trust in our leadership. We thank you for your energy and dedication that you bring to the program.
