U.S. Army and Coast Guard helicopters will fly onto Ford Island on Friday and Saturday to open an aviation conference at the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor.
The “Discovering Your Future in Aviation” conference will be held 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The museum said the weekend will be “filled with hands-on workshops and seminars, a career fair, aviation films, interactive science exhibits, and the opportunity to talk one-on-one with aviation professionals and learn more about careers in aviation and the related sciences.”
The conference is free with museum admission.
On Friday at 8:30 a.m., Army OH-58D Kiowa Warrior and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters will land on Ford Island, the museum said. On Saturday at 9:30 a.m., a Coast Guard HH-65 Dolphin will land. Those in attendance can meet and greet the pilots.
“The conference is designed to encourage young women and men to learn more about and pursue careers in aviation and other related sciences, and it gives students a great chance to network with aviation professionals,” said museum Executive Director Kenneth DeHoff.
