Aviation Education High School Course

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.

In the first year of the program the museum had three students who completed the program.  One is focused on aerospace phyics as a career, one is pursuing a career as a pilot, and the third wants to work in air traffic control. Class size has doubled each year since its inaugural year. The program will enter its fourth year in the fall of 2015. Museum staff are now accepting registrations for the 2015-2016 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.
