Goldwings is proud to be an Olomana School Community Partner. Thirteen high school seniors participated on Oct. 24, 2023, in part one of a four-part “Nerding Out” career workshop series on aviation, which also covers electrical, automotive/transit, and entrepreneurship. Our CEO Lia Young Hunt was impressed by the discussion and questions on turbines vs. piston engines, turbulence, hovering technologies, and more.
In November, we continued the series with a visit from John, our equipment and vehicle maintenance technician, as we discussed workforce opportunities in the automotive industry. John demonstrated an airbag deployment and talked about emerging industries such as connected vehicle technology, which Goldwings is proud to be piloting with the City and County, HDOT and the University of Hawai’i. The series helps prepare students for a successful and fulfilling future through educational enrichment, career readiness, industry exposure, and hands-on experience.
