Air Cargo would like to thank Job, Anthony and Mohamed for the outstanding summer work! We were blessed to have such a great group of people participate in the ACE Program.

Air Cargo worked with the Wisconsin DOT, ACE program, a summer employment and learning opportunity for high school students in Milwaukee. ACE promotes aviation and space education and provides students with experiences in aviation-related jobs. ACE is the result of partnerships between industry, schools, and government.

Why is ACE important?

  • Promotes aviation/space education, including career opportunities.
  • Encourages students to succeed in school by making classwork more meaningful.
  • It gives students experiences in aviation-related jobs, which help them realize that aviation careers are within their reach.
  • Encourages youth to start planning their future, set career goals, and plan how they will get there.
  • Assists employers in developing the next generation of skilled workers in aviation.
  • Promotes collaboration with educators and schools in support of aviation initiatives.
