Does anyone have any connections within the airline industry in the U.S. that could help me get a position (does not have to be a paying job) at a U.S. or other airline preferably in the Detroit area. I am 15 and am looking for a job for the summer of 2007, i am currently 15 and would also be happy to have a job for a short time this summer. I would prefer to work in some type of organizational line of work like operations, even if you can just give me a person to e-mail or call or contact someone you work for to get the process started, also it can be working for an airport or airline related business.
Hope someone can help me, Thanks

Thats called an internship, and you need to be enrolled in a specific college to do that.
Just concentrate on being 15, you'll get there soon enough.
And yes, you gotta be 18.

But what about if i wanted to just shadow someone, i mean that has to be possbile, i mean what else will i do next summer???

My suggestion would be to show up at an FBO and let them know that you'll do ANYTHING. You might be washing & waxing planes, or sweeping a hangar floor, but you'll be around planes and it'll get you in the door.
You're doing the right thing. Your enthusiasm will take you far.

You wear a bright yellow vest, get a SIDA badge and get use of the employee parking lot and discounts from all the concessions and merchants at the airport.

PHLJJS, do you have the name of that program and can you give me more information about it because it actually sounds good and i can be around planes and maybe create connections in the industry
