Duluth Aviation Institute
preserving yesterday, inspiring today, exploring tomorrow
DULUTH ONE

Vision
Our vision is a community inspired and enriched 
by the art and science of aviation.

Mission
Our mission is to preserve our community's deep aviation history,
and to educate our community 
with this history and knowledge of aviation and aerospace.

Values
To accomplish its mission, the Duluth Aviation Institute shall base 
its decisions and actions on the following core values and beliefs:

Accountability for the Future   The Institute shall always remain mindful of how today's decisions affect the future.  We shall strive to favor long term improvement for our community over short term benefit for the Institute.  We shall hold ourselves accountable for doing whatever we can to bring about a successful future for our community and for the generations who follow us.

Asset Approach   We recognize that our community possesses an abundance of talents and strengths upon which to build.  We shall encourage our broad community to participate in our efforts, drawing on their wisdom and experience.  We shall embrace all assets to help us accomplish our objectives.

Interconnected and Interdependent   We know that individuals, organizations, and communities are all interconnected and interdependent - our potential is greatest when we work together.  Our approaches and actions shall discourage competition.  We shall complete our work in a manner that is open and cooperative.  We shall always seek the best end result for the communities we serve, working side by side with others.  Our actions shall always treat all parties with respect, compassion, generosity, and dignity.

Practical and Accessible   The Institute shall pursue practical approaches, in a continuous learning environment, to achieve its objectives.  The Institute shall always pursue pragmatic means to reach as many people as possible.

The future belongs to those
who see possibilities.
