The Aviation Careers class available 2nd semester during the spring of 2021 will teach students about the many different career fields in aviation.

There will be field trips to an airport to see airfeild operations, possibly an air traffic control facility, an FBO to talk to aviation mechanics, 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 $440/student for the semester.
