    *Welcome Students to event. Explain who you are, and who SOB is, and what we are doing.Explain that the journey starts now that if you want to become an astronaut, doctor, scientist, you can!Emphasize the goals are obtainable, but they need to start today.

    *Introduce yourself and those with you. Explain how you are involved in aviation related professions. Facts: Started in 2000 by an airline pilot, concerned about the lack of our students planning a career in our Aerospace Programs.Currently have approximately 18 students in the USAFA we are mentoring. Total membership of appx 150 students and volunteers.Registered non-profit corporation.

    *Explain a bit about the Tuskegee Airmen and their history.*Name Lockheed, Boeing, NASA, Air Force, Navy*Self explanitory.*Talk about how we, as Pilots & Scientists, use a number of outside resources. As students, they have parents, teachers, counselors, libraries, and much more. Examples: computer and internet, books and Shades of Blue.*Explain why YOU are here to talk to the kids. Use the talking points on the slide to start you off.*We as pilots must plan things out as we fly from one point to another. Emphasize early planning. Ask kids, When is the time to start? Get them to answer Today!

    *Ask what the blanks could be. Get the kids to suggest answers.*Ask what the blanks could be. Get the kids to suggest answers.*Ask what the blanks could be. Get the kids to suggest answers.*Emphasize this is the most common answer.*Ask what the blanks could be. Get the kids to suggest answers.*Heres the answer. Explain that it is the failure to plan that hurts you in life. Emphasize this is the time to start planning their life and what they want from that life.*Pose the question and let the kids answer.*This is the obvious answer.*Explain point A as LAX; point B as HKG. Describe it as your plan or your course, or your route to go from one place to another.*However, in aviation, you might have to change course to get to your goal. Just like in life, you might have to plan your life and then make changes as the situation dictates but you have to keep focused on where you want to go. If there are problems, you have to solve them and keep on heading toward your objective. Explain this, and be prepared for the next three slides.**By knowing where you are going you can get back on track and continue on toward where you want to be.**Explain that the kids must decide what they want in life. How can they get somewhere if they dont know where they are going? Ask them what they would like to have in life wealth happiness a family etc.Then discuss that they have to start deciding now how to get to where they want to be. They have to fill the squares as they go along to be successful. Sum up all previous slides --- and equate this slide, and the time in the kids lives to forming a flight plan for life, and being prepared to follow it.**Also mention flight attendants, dispatcher, mechanics, ramp personnel, Air Traffic Control, etc., etc.

    *Discuss how the subjects that they are currently taking are important to any job in aviation, aerospace and engineering.*Plan ask again What did we say? Most people dont plan to fail, they just _________. Let the kids answer.*Discuss responsibility and how they are the only ones that can make their dream come true. Remind them again to stay away from drugs/alcohol/smoking and crime. *Close up the briefing with these points. Give a little pep talk that they can be successful if they will just work at it. The choice is theirs .*If your class is specifically interested in Aviation pilot, astronaut, etc. then you may reference the following four slides. Otherwise, end the presentation here.

    *Explain the differences in the types of jobs. Tell them how they can move from one job to another and what the usual job progression can be.*Since flying is expensive, you have to earn the money somehow. The best free way is to join the military and attend one of the service academies or join after college through ROTC. The military sends you to the best flight school in the world.*You have to have good hearing and good vision as well as good vital signs. You have to know numbers not calculus, but the ability to work with headings, altitudes, performance factors and to read back clearances. Set the scene and give an example: United 847, turn right to 350, descend to 28,000 ft, squawk 2000 and contact San Francisco on 123.45. Have the kids try to read back the clearance you just gave them. It should be good for a laugh.Tell them a pilot has to be able to reason and think clearly (what do you do if the fuel is running out and there is weather over the field?) You have to have a stable lifestyle in that you cant be a hothead or get excited. No one wants the pilot to be a wild and crazy guy!)

    *Advantages of the pilot life style. Also discuss how health is important (passing phys
