Aviation Education Classes High School Juniors & Seniors

Change font size:

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. 

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.

They built nine in Springfield, Massachusetts followed by a series of sportsters (monoplanes) and finally leading to the famous Gee Bee supersportster racers, one of which established a new world land-air speed record. It was flown by James Doolittle. Click here to read more about the Gee Bees.
