In the vast world of aviation and engineering, there is an untapped pool of talent waiting to be discovered. Soaring to Success, a nonprofit organization based in Tennessee, is on a mission to change that. Established in 2019, this 501(c)(3) corporation is dedicated to providing online drone instruction, consulting, and drone flight instruction services to individuals who are often overlooked in these industries, specifically women, minorities, and at-risk youth.

Led by Cedric Divine, a service-related disabled Vietnam War Era Veteran and FAA Certified Remote Pilot, Soaring to Success aims to go where no one else can reach. “We go where no one else can reach, right in the underserved areas, and to look for the stars of the future,” the company says. “We would like to give incentives to finish the different levels of training that are aviation and engineering related.” Their goal is to provide these individuals with the skills needed to transition from government services to becoming valuable contributors to society, all while offering a pathway to financial freedom through certifications and real trackable advancements. By providing certifications and tangible goals, Soaring to Success empowers its students to envision a future in high-paying occupations that pay family wages.

With over a decade of experience in the drone industry, Cedric Divine has become an expert in drone equipment, software, and various types of drones used to complete specific projects. His passion for aviation and his extensive knowledge have paved the way for Soaring to Success to focus on the development of job training programs that use aviation as the key component. Soaring to Success’ dedication to using innovative approaches, such as drone simulation online software, ensures that their programs are not only engaging but also relevant to high-paying careers in aviation and aircraft engineering.

Soaring to Success recognizes the importance of representation and diversity in the aviation industry. With a focus on women, minorities, and at-risk youth, they aim to bridge the gap and create a more inclusive and diverse workforce. “There is only a very small percentage of these individuals in the aviation industry; the more these individuals are exposed to the opportunities and the skills developed using these programs, the better they are prepared to meet the challenges of aviation,” the company explains. By exposing these individuals to the vast opportunities available in aviation and engineering, Soaring to Success is equipping them with the tools needed to succeed in these industries.

The challenges of aviation require fresh perspectives and unique problem-solving skills, which can only be achieved through diverse representation. Furthermore, by empowering individuals who may not have otherwise considered a career in aviation, the organization is contributing to the growth and development of the community. These individuals, who deserve an opportunity to better themselves, are given the chance to pursue a career that offers both personal fulfillment and financial stability.
