Aviation Students Visit United Airlines and O’Hare International Airport

Nine student members of the recently formed Aviation Collegiate Education (ACE) Club, a student organization which focuses on careers in the airline industry, recently participated in an exclusive tour of United Airlines and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The group, currently in just its second year of existence, is one of several similar groups nationwide established by the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) to bridge the gap between classrooms and aviation careers. EKU was not the only school that participated in the experience either. Students from both Parks College in St. Louis and Lewis University in Romeoville, IL also joined in on the trip and gave the Eastern students a great networking opportunity in addition to the tour itself.
