EDC StaffWorkforce

(Lee’s Summit, MO) – Several Summit Christian Academy (SCA) secondary students recently had the opportunity to visit Lee’s Summit’s ULTRAX Aerospace Incorporated. ULTRAX Aerospace partners with aviation professionals worldwide to provide instant access to unbiased and actionable intelligence for empowered decision-making at every level of the organization.

SCA Students were inspired to excellence through both the tour and the encouragement of Ultrax employees. Everyone on the visit was especially thrilled to have access to the inner workings of a helicopter! The tour was made possible through the Lee’s Summit Economic Development Council’s work in connecting schools with local businesses.

“I can’t wait to have the students visit again,” shared SCA Academic Dean Kimberlee Gill. “Our mission is to inspire students to meet their God-given potential, and our students’ visit with Ultrax did exactly that! We are incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity for our students!”

Established in 1989, Summit Christian Academy is celebrating 28 years of providing excellent academics in a Christian environment to the Kansas City metro area. SCA is an independent, non-denominational Christian school serving nearly 800 preschool through high school students. Located on a 36-acre campus, SCA holds dual accreditation through North Central Association and Association of Christian Schools International.

Founded in 1995 by brothers Brian and Chris Lincoln, ULTRAX is an innovator built on culture and strategy. Our first and most important asset is the ULTRAX Central Nervous System or CNS. CNS is our proprietary, systemic method of empirically breaking down big problems into simple solutions. Over the years, our CNS has accumulated a great deal of knowledge about aircraft electrical systems, including their function and why they degrade and fail in repeating patterns.

From military to commercial, from flight-line to bench, from static-state brainpacks to dynamic-state iOS and Android apps, all ULTRAX products and solutions are, at their core, derived from the CNS and use the condition of things to create intelligent, accurate & actionable feedback.
