Education and Program Development
This project and organization has facilitated and inspired others through STEM+Arts (Science, Technology, Math, Engineering) and is a proud member of the STEM Education Coalition. GAAHF’s social media channels showcase the heritage, STEM + Arts, women and students of aviation, status and event updates, and the pioneers of the industry. The Markham Group also created the, “Comeback of a German-American Aviation Icon” which was aimed at fundraising for bringing the Super Star back into the skies.
GAAHF has built and currently distributes monthly newsletters to readers and enthusiasts across the globe. Since the establishment of GAAHF, this project has caught national attention and has been featured in the renowned Smithsonian Air & Space magazine, as well as a two-part webstory feature by Warbirds Aviation.
GAAHF has been invited and participated in several events across the country, such as:
- Annual U.S. Chamber of Commerce Aviation Summit in Washington, DC
- Hannover Messe 2016 in Hanover, Germany
- Cradle of Aviation Curators’ Conference in New York, NY
- EU Day hosted by The German Embassy in Washington, DC
- Lufthansa and U.S. Gateway Launch at FRA-SJO, in San Jose, CA
Long-Term Foundation Sustainability
GAAHF has worldwide support from aviation industry partners, FAA, EASA, LBA and many enthusiasts for this project. We have inspired and broadened our network amplification within our DC-based organization by establishing an Advisory Council, composed of U.S. experts from industry, economics, public affairs, fundraising, politics and partnership with Germany.
