Our Mission and Vision
MODAERO Aviation Community is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that was created by a grassroots group of Aviation Professionals with the goal of stimulating positive growth in Aviation. General Aviation is the source of our Industry's educational, experiential and economic production streams. For decades this ecosystem has been in substantial decline as demonstrated by the number of new private pilots. MODAERO aims to replenish these source waters in order to once again grow GA by attracting the next generation of Aviation.
To engage, educate and empower the next generation within the Aerospace Community.
We seek a future with abundant achievable opportunities for all those who dream of taking flight.
