Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Blue skies,

Gateway Youth Aeronautical Foundation Inspires Interest in Aviation

By Carmelo Turdo
The Gateway Youth Aeronautical Foundation is developing new programs to support the mission of inspiring youth interest in the field of aviation. In just nine months, the foundation has renovated their hangar and set up a small museum, launched the Discovery Flight program with Gateway Flight Training, completed restoration of the F-4 cockpit mobile exhibit, made great progress restoring a Bell OH-58 Army scout helicopter to flight, begun installing airplane and helicopter flight simulators, and secured fun and educational activity equipment for very young children. The local community has been very generous, and the foundation thanks everyone who has donated so far this year. More programs will be launched this winter and spring, and your tax-deductible donation will be needed to make next year a great success as well!
