An American Hero. I Believe I Can Fly.

In 2005, at the age of 21, Barrington Irving founded the non for profit organization, Experience Aviation Inc., to address the shortage of skilled professionals in aviation and other STEM-related industries by motivating youth and encouraging them to pursue careers involving Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

Since then, The Experience Aviation team and its partners, including middle and high school educators and community leaders, have worked toward a common goal. Their mission is to inspire young people to identify and pursue their dreams in STEM.

Experience Aviation, located in Opa-Locka Executive Airport and the Glenn Curtiss Mansion in Miami Springs.  The organization according to its website, operates two 3,200-square-foot learning Center facilities.  Successful programs offered at the Center and at community partner facilities include a 10-week Build & Soar Project, a STEM Summer Academy, Inspiration Career Tours, and a Career Development/Internship program.

This afternoon approximately 1:10pm, Barrington Irving launched the first ever Flying Classroom Interactive STEM+learning adventure flying over 3 continents from Reagan Washington National Airport.  Captain Barrington Irving currently holds the Guinness World Record as the youngest person to fly solo around the world.  Irving and his crew will travel to North America, Asia, Indonesia, and Austraila to explore real life applications of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math to include geography, and humanities.
