Aviation Education High School Course

The Aviation Museum of NH is pleased to announce that it continues to offer its aviation education class, open to all NH high school students.  This course is made possible with generous support from Lincoln Financial Foundation.

The course of study, based on a NASA program called Virtual Skies, is taught at the museum three days a week.  The classroom at the museum has been fully furnished with desks donated by the FAA in Burlington, MA and outfitted with a “state of the art” projection system called Brightlink. 

Students are expected to have a STEM background (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), in order to be prepared for technical challenges they'll face in college or industry. The museum has two goals: 1) to help prepare students for college, and 2) to offer a career-based program to enlighten young people about the many and diverse career paths available in aviation today.

The Virtual Skies course of study covers six modules which include airport planning and design, navigation, weather, communications, air traffic control and aeronautics.

 Museum staff are now accepting registrations for the 2016-2017 year. 

Stay tuned for further updates as the year goes along. It is also in our plans to offer this class as part of a larger distance learning effort.  We envision students across the state of NH taking classes broadcast electronically from our 1937 terminal building.

Current Students:  The first day of class (2016-2017) is Monday, September 12.  Class will take place Mondays and Wednesdays at the museum 3:30 - 5:00 p.m.  Our course follows the Manchester, NH School District schedule regarding days off due to holidays, vacation, or inclement weather.
