About Us

Aviation Career Enrichment (ACE) is a non-profit organization operating under the IRS rules of 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. ACE was established November 22, 1980 by Julius Alexander.
Julius Alexander - President and CEO
The concept of training teenagers to fly and what ACE has evolved into today is the result of a lifetime vision and commitment of Julius Alexander, a former Atlanta Public Schools high school teacher, television newsman and publicist for Lockheed Martin Aerospace. Mr. Alexander is also an active ground instructor with certifications in single and multi-engine airplanes. He has logged over 11,000 hours teaching primary, advanced and instrument aircraft training to hundreds of pilots. He is also a published aviation writer.

Career opportunities in aviation exist in many areas. In addition to offering pilot flight training, ACE continues to offer aerospace career exploration programs that provide exposure to other aviation careers through field trips, guest speakers and hands on experiences.

In addition to aerospace education and pilot training, a key component of the ACE philosphy is character building and leadership development. To better associate the name of ACE to the goals of the organization being a school of higher learning, we recently changed the name of our youth focused program from ACE to The ACE Academy.

On April 9, 2011, Mr. Alexander was inducted into the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame at The Georgia Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Georgia.
