The Flight Path was bustling with students from all over Los Angeles and Baton Rouge last weekend. The Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) Foundation and LAX hosted the Project Leaders Inspiring Future Talent (LIFT) event to mentor students interested in fields related to aviation, sharing potential careers, educational paths to success, and networking opportunities with potential mentors in different aviation industries.

Shown here are staff and students surrounding 94-year-old Tuskegee Airmen Jerry Hodges!

We love bringing the world of aviation to kids of all ages!

VOLUNTERERS NEEDED at LAX !
Hi. A friend in El Segundo has a large collection of model airplanes in their garage. She is looking to find a new home for them. Do you have interest, or know of anyone, a club, school, etc. who may be interested? Most models are of WWII planes. See picture below (unfortunately only 1 pic allowed).
Thanks for letting us park on your ramp. This was early Wednesday morning just before sunrise.
