This document contains three papers on aviation education. "Aviation/Aerospace Teacher Education Workshops: Program Development and Implementation" (Mavis F. Green) discusses practical issues in the development of an aviation/aerospace teacher education workshop designed to help elementary school teachers promote aviation to their students. "Globalization Strategies and the Prospects of Increased Competition in the International Airline Industry" (Scott E. Tarry, Lawrence J. Truitt) examines the potential impact of globalization strategies on competition in the international airline market. It concludes, from an analysis of four cases, that globalization strategies are reasonable for some airlines but may actually lessen the chance for real competition in the market even if ongoing government negotiations are successful. "Situated Learning: A Theory for Learning Situation Awareness" (Donna Forsyth Wilt, Philip Horton) examines the educational theory of situated learning (a theory based on the idea that learning takes place as interaction between a novice, an expert, and their social and physical environment) and its application in flight training.
