The AAAE student chapter at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA), has been heavily involved in promoting the organization. CSULA's AAAE Chapter officers have attended every university student union meeting and gained knowledge of how to run the chapter.
The chapter president, vice president and secretary have attended numerous aviation-related classes on campus and have spoken about the benefits of membership in the chapter. Nine student members from the chapter attended the Southwest Chapter-AAAE (SWAAAE) Winter Conference last year and are expected to exceed that number this year.
Members were invited to the 6th Annual Airports Conference for the Western-Pacific Region held by FAA in Los Angeles. The chapter also was invited to attend a tour of Raytheon earlier this year in conjunction with the university engineering department. Members attended the SWAAAE summer conference, and numerous students volunteered for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association aviation summit held at Long Beach (Calif.) Airport.
