Future of aviation? Where from you have high qualified professionals to assure the next generation of aviators? Each manufacturer has to act today in order to have these professionals of tommorow on board.

Bell launched its new high school Student Training Employment Program (STEP). The students and schools were selected through Bell’s partnership with Project Lead the Way, a non-profit that puts STEM classes into K-12 classrooms. Students from Fort Worth and Arlington ISDs submitted their resumes and participated in onsite interviews. Out of the many applications received, seven students were selected.

The seven students selected will be working part-time throughout the school year in various departments, partnering with our Engineering, IT and Integrated Operations teams to learn the ins and outs of our industry. Along with school credit, these young minds will earn invaluable experience studying our aircraft and all the teamwork and collaboration it takes to achieve vertical flight. 

In the future, Bell plans to expand the program by including more students and schools around the Dallas Fort Worth area. Creating a diverse and collaborative workplace starts with bringing in new ideas, especially when we have so much talent in our surrounding schools and neighborhoods. This program is a wonderful opportunity to get students excited about vertical lift experiences and gain new perspectives from future innovators.
