The Pathfinders are a group of more than 160 volunteers who love aviation and have a heart-filled desire to assist people from around the world. The Pathfinders come to us from various professional careers in aviation, government and the private sector. One gentleman is a retired naval aviator and former Chief Pilot with American Airlines. We have several individuals who worked nearby at Ft. Meade with the National Security Agency (NSA). We also have a Pathfinder who is a registered nurse, and another recently retired as a cartoonist with a local newspaper.
Pathfinders contribute at least 4 hours per week staffing several information desks. In 2013, Pathfinder volunteers worked over 26,000 hours. They assisted over 47,000 people each month. The Pathfinders can be found in the terminal seven days a week, 365 days a year.
