Service to the Community


The Youth Aviation Foundation (YAF) is a non-profit corporation that supports efforts to expose young people to community service and leadership training in an aviation-centered environment. We believe that adults mentoring youth in volunteer emergency services, leadership, and aerospace science will open the doors for our nationís future astronauts, aviators, engineers, scientists and civic leaders, as well as contributing to the academic and emotional development of young people.† It is the goal of the Youth Aviation Foundation to provide the facilities and tools to make this happen. 

All donations and earnings from product sales go 100% to support our missions!
