About Us

Ever wonder what it would be like to soar like an eagle?

You can have the winds lift you up into the lofty heights of earthly space! All you need to do is become a part of
aviation. Learn the science, the mechanics, and the theories of flight.   

Before you can fly, let us help you:

Learn the basics of flight through practical application. 

Learn about lift, drag, weight, thrust and stability  

Learn about potential versus kinetic energy 

Learn about momentum, stability, and center of gravity 

Learn about pitch, yaw, and roll 

Learn about forces and torque as well as power to weight ratio

Learn flight simulation 


Then you will be set to learn to FLY!  

This is what Aviators By Design is all about:

  

To encourage the Next Generation to Explore, Learn and Discover Opportunities in the World of Aviation!

Background:

As of the end of 2009, in  the US, there were an estimated 594,285 pilots and that number is  approximately the same today.   This number has been declining gradually  over the past several decades, down from a high of over 827,000 pilots  in 1980; this represents a drop of more than 232,715 pilots in the last  29 years.
 

Our industry has a problem,  and it impacts all aspects of aviation.  As older pilots phase out of  their careers in aviation, the pipe line to fill these diminishing  numbers is lacking.  No longer are there large numbers of pilots being  generated by the military.   Gone are the days when the military  produced all the pilots the airlines could absorb. 

“FAA forecasts that the  number of student pilots nationwide will drop to a 10-year low of about  69,000 next year.  That’s a 30 percent decrease in a decade.  This is a  problem for all of aviation and it will take all aspects of aviation to  be a part of the solution.
 

Fewer pilots equate to less  business for the industry, and it threatens the strong, sustainable  aviation system our nation counts on.   

General aviation is the  pipeline for flight instructors as well as regional and commercial  pilots.  A smaller pool of qualified pilots could prevent airlines from  expanding to new routes, and it could also mean lower training  requirements. 

Today’s youth are captured  by video games and computers, losing the leadership skill obtained from  real world challenges. Our industry competes with today’s tools of  immediate gratification – the internet, videos, games, texting and  tweeting… all the technologies that have made learning to fly less  exciting and less appealing because of this uphill battle, we must make  learning to fly and flying more “Accessible and more affordable.”
