Aviation Explorations 12
Are you interested in aviation? Have you wondered about being an aerospace engineer, aircraft maintenance engineer, pilot, flight attendant, air traffic controller, airport operations specialist or working with Transport Canada? Or, are you just interested in flying for fun?
Aviation Explorations 12 is a completely new course this year. It’s different from other aviation ground school courses because of its wide focus—not just being a pilot. Our goal is to give you a big picture view of what is available and help you ask the right questions for learning more. Because it’s offered after school (Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00 to 7:00pm) you can enroll without scheduling conflicts with your other courses.
The course combines classroom, online, hands-on projects and field trips to deepen understanding. Here’s some of the topics we will cover in this introductory course
- History of Flight
- Airframes, Powerplants (engines), and Instrumentation
- Theory of Flight
- Intro to Meteorology
- Intro to Aviation Navigation
- Air Law
- Safety Management
- Aviation Career Explorations
