FlyQuest has designed a comprehensive Aviation Fundamentals course, which is taught by FlyQuest personnel to public and home-school high school students, from freshmen to seniors.
Unique Five-day Course
The unique five-day program is spread over a semester and provides students with first-hand exposure to aerodynamic principles and aircraft components, as well as what is required to pursue one of four aviation career fields: pilot, aircraft maintenance, air traffic control and air operations. The class involves several tours and field trips, for example, to Huntsville International’s air traffic control tower and an opportunity to experience flight with an instructor in FlyQuest’s unique 6 Degrees of Freedom flight simulator.
Customed-tailored Education Programs
FlyQuest can custom-tailor the education program to individual school audiences. Home-school students have exposure to the same curriculum as public school students. FlyQuest has successfully taught its Aviation Fundamentals course to Butler High School students and a group of 10 home-schoolers.
