Inspiring children 
We hope that this park inspires children to get into aviation. Pilots, engineering, air traffic control, aircraft maintenance, or CNC Machinist jobs are all found in aviation. 

In the park, seventeen educational aviation signs cover items like:  air traffic control, how aircraft achieve flight, parts of an aircraft, careers in the aviation industry, general aviation aircraft uses, gauges on aircraft instrument panels, how weather affects flight, etc...  The South Carolina Aeronautics Commission, South Carolina Aviation Association, Michelin and Lockheed Martin gave generous donations to help us with this part of the park project!
