NBAA is again hosting a general session focusing on careers in business aviation targeted at middle- and high-school students. The event, to be held November 1 from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Orange County Convention Center, is designed to inspire young people to consider aviation careers. Keynote speaker is Barrington Irving, ambassador for the Mitsubishi/Barrington Irving Dream & Soar: Youth in Aviation program, which emphasizes study in science and math. The session will be followed by a question-and-answer period and then a group tour of the exhibit halls by the students, who hail from central Florida. Irving is the first African American and the youngest person to fly solo around the world.
