The Aviation Science class available 1st semester during the fall of 2022 will cover several segments. Students will learn about aerodynamics, engines, flight rules & regulations, flight controls, air space structure, and aviation history. It will be an exciting class bringing in concepts from many disciplines of science. There will be 3 or 4 field trips including rocket shooting, radio control airplane flying, and aviation museum, and possibly a trip to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. The class is $440/student for the semester.
The Aviation Careers class available 2nd semester during the spring of 2023 will teach students about the many different career fields in aviation. There is more to the aviation world than just piloting! We will cover airfield operations, air traffic controller, aerospace engineer, pilot, aviation mechanic, and other aviation careers. There will be field trips to an airport to see airfield operations, possibly an air traffic control facility, an FBO to talk to aviation mechanics, an aviation mechanic school, and an optional trip to a local flight school where students can get behind the controls of a small plane for a lap in the pattern! The class is $460/student for the semester.
