The purpose of the Aviation Career Education (ACE) Program is to provide local students the opportunity to explore careers in the aerospace industry by tapping into resources at Easton Airport. Programs and courses are offered throughout the year that introduce students to a variety of aviation related career options. As students begin to find the path that’s tailored to their interests, the program will offer additional resources and support to help guide them along their ACE journey.

ACE members are committed to fostering the future aviators and engineers of Talbot County.


Easton Airport is one of the busiest General Aviation airports in the State of Maryland. The airport has been financially self-sufficient since 1993 and is poised for smart, well balanced growth. Recognizing that aviation careers are understaffed nationwide, airport management has taken proactive measures to introduce aviation to the youth of the mid-shore. Aviation careers are highly technical, some require little or no college, and they are in high demand throughout our region.

Easton Airport is home to a variety of businesses, pilots, and engineers. We tap into their resources, and our own staff’s experiences, to introduce students to the variety of aviation related careers that exist. These experiences often include hands-on course, tours, and opportunities to shadow aviation professionals.

Some of the ACE Program offerings are self-paced while others are scheduled in advanced. Join our mailing list below to stay in-the-know. You can also follow us on Facebook @EastonAirport to catch the latest updates as we share them.
