Flying Academy Initiative

The American Sikh Council (ASC) is focused on education (internal and external) but primarily to empower our youth and their future. Among our many national initiatives, this particular initiative is to excite and inspire our youth to the joy of flying which can possibly lead their career into Aviation (private, commercial and/or the Air Force). Do not miss this fantastic opportunity available for our youth, which can change their lives forever.

ASC has been invited by the Air Force Recruiting Service, Detachment 1 (AFRS/Det 1) to nominate students who are eligible to participate in its AIM HIGH Flight Academy (AHFA).
