Description of Program:
The Aviation "Exploration" Program is designed to introduce students to every aspect of the aviation industry. This program is intended for students with an interest in pursuing any career related to aviation, not just as a pilot. Students will develop a broad knowledge base in subject areas ranging from the evolution of airplanes and commercial aviation, flight operations, weather, airspace, navigation, regulations, and aircraft systems. The curriculum progression builds upon the students' own perceptions and prior experiences with aviation. The students will also work with math, literacy, and career instructors at the Center to develop employability skills.
