Aviation Career Enrichment
If they can see it, they can be it!

Julius Alexander - Founder of ACE

Founder’s Welcome

Welcome to the Aviation Career Enrichment website!  We’re thrilled that you are interested in learning more about our mission to use the vehicle of flight training to inspire young people to sharpen their academic skills and remain in school.  

  • Who We Are: ACE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is governed by a group of elected members who jointly oversee the activities of the organization. 

  • What We Do:  Since 1980, Aviation Career Enrichment, Inc., and the Atlanta ACE Academy have worked to address the shortfall of minorities working in aviation and aerospace professions by introducing disadvantaged, at-risk and minority youth to aviation opportunities.  While African-Americans comprise the majority of our participants, the doors of ACE are open to young men and women of any background.

  • How We Work: ACE utilizes a 100% all-volunteer staff for the ACE Weekend Flight Academy; no single person derives or receives any form of compensation for their efforts. 

  • Our Success:  As a result of 30+ years of operation, scores of former ACE students and volunteers are now successful aviation professionals and are among the very small percentage of African-Americans and other minority groups working in the airline industry, military and corporate aviation.

We hope this website helps you learn more about our organization and ultimately helps you in your decision to join the Aviation Career Enrichment family.  Please feel free to call us Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 1:00pm at 404.691.0441 or visit us any Saturday between September and May from 9:00am to 12:00pm to learn more.
