DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - In the next two decades, Boeing predicts there will be a need for 637,000 more/new pilots.
Averett University is trying to get more students interested in their program.
That's why the school held Aviation day Friday.
It was a chance for future students to connect with current students, instructors within Averett's program, and several aviation companies.
Over 20 prospective students and their families attended the all day event, one of the largest for the school.
