Badging

What is the AeroEducate badging program?

Badging awards you for completing aviation activities in the AeroEducate program. As you complete activities and gain knowledge in aviation, you will receive a specific elemental badge. There are four different elemental badges: Piloting, Careers, Community Involvement, and Aviation Science and Technology. Once you earn all four badges, you will then receive the overall badge for your age group. For example, after earning all four elemental badges within the AeroPioneer activity age group, you will earn the AeroPioneer badge.

Why badging matters?

Experience the World of Aviation

In addition to flying, there are so many more exciting opportunities to explore in the world of aviation.  Learning about those opportunities is not only a lot of fun, but it can start at any age! As you work through various online activities, conquer games and test out experiments, you will advance to the next level and earn a new badge. This is the best way to learn and try out all aspects of the aviation world to see what you enjoy most. 

Partner Recognized

Our AeroEducate partners want you to discover how exciting aviation can be — that’s why they will continue to provide new activities for you to keep growing your knowledge.  

Share Your Success

Once you have earned a badge, you will be able to share your achievement with your friends on social media, as part of a college application, on your résumé, or on a job application.
