The Virginia Department of Aviation began a campaign to promote aviation careers in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The first of a series of commercials began running during Aviation Week in Virginia (August 12-16, 2019).  Commercials were shown on stations in  Roanoke (site of the 2019 Virginia Aviation Conference),  Richmond, Harrisonburg, Bristol and Lynchburg.

Additional commercials were planned to run through the end of October 2019 and then commence again in March 2020 (running through the end of May 2020).

With all the opportunities currently available, now is a great time to consider an aviation career!
