Dreams are able to fly through MOSASP
Two decades after September 11, youth’s interaction with air travel began to degrade. No longer were non-flying passengers allowed in certain sections of the airport, let alone to see the plane. Gone were the days when the general public interacted with airports without tickets in hand. When Joe Steimann saw that a whole generation had experienced a disadvantage to other generations to air travel, he knew that he had to do something about it.
As an air travel enthusiast, and former military, he decided to form an organization dedicated to teaching youth about aviation. Located in the St. Louis area, he cleverly named the organization the Gateway Youth Aeronautics Foundation. Garnering support from donors, he obtained an airport hangar at Creve Coeur, Mo, where he was able to house a small museum and simulators for youth interactions.
