Welcome Aboard The Learning Jet!
The Learning Jet is the first nonprofit organization of its kind in the nation. Our mission is to spark students' interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) by exposing them to fun, engaging, and practical aviation education programs and activities.
We Are a One-Of-A-Kind STEM Experience
The Learning Jet is a renovated Boeing 727-200 cargo jet transformed into a classroom for education and community organizations. Our unique, hands-on program helps students succeed in school and creates an aviation workforce pipeline so our region is prepared to meet the transportation challenges of the future.
