Jeff Pino Foundation Provides Opportunity for Local Students to Attend Heli-Expo 2024

The Jeff Pino Foundation in partnership with Helicopter Association International (HAI) has invited local students to attend Heli-Expo 2024. Following the positive reception from Atlanta students last year, this marks the second year of their sponsorship.

ANAHEIM, CALIF: February 26, 2024 – The Jeff Pino Foundation (JPF) is excited to announce that 150 students from the Anaheim, California area have been exclusively invited to attend Heli-Expo 2024 on Day 3, February 29th. In partnership with the Helicopter Association International (HAI), JPF is making it possible for students specializing in aviation and STEM-related fields to explore the world's largest show dedicated to rotorcraft.

The Jeff Pino Foundation has invited students from Canyon High School, Corona High School, along with selected schools from the Bonita Unified School District based on their studies in aviation and STEM disciplines. This unique opportunity aims to inspire and provide exposure to the promising careers within the rotorcraft industry.

“Attending Heli-Expo is a transformative experience for these students, offering them a chance to engage with industry leaders, speak directly to OEMs and their suppliers, and gain valuable insights into the rotorcraft industry,” said Greg Brown, Director of Education and Training Services, HAI. “This experience goes beyond classrooms and textbooks, providing them with a hands-on encounter with the latest innovations, technologies, and industry experts. It's a stepping stone towards a future in the dynamic field of aviation."

"We are thrilled to collaborate with HAI in bringing students to Heli-Expo 2024. Connecting young minds with industry professionals and cutting-edge technology is crucial for fostering innovation and passion within the rotorcraft sector, and the main goal of JPF," said Greg Allen, Chairman and CEO of the Jeff Pino Foundation.

The Jeff Pino Foundation invites individuals and organizations to support this initiative by volunteering during the event or contributing to the foundation's efforts. If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of these students, please contact us for more information.

The creation of the Jeff Pino Foundation serves as a tribute to the life and enduring impact of Jeff Pino, a distinguished industry leader who encouraged young individuals to explore careers in aviation. The Foundation has an established scholarship program for high school seniors who aspire to pursue degrees in aviation-related fields, obtain a pilot license, or achieve certifications in aircraft maintenance. Furthermore, the Foundation actively sponsors programs such as A is for Aerospace, Project Cub, and Camp Soar. This is the second year they have sponsored local area students to attend Heli-Expo.
