interested in flight operations and non-flight careers. At the end of the sophomore year,
students will select either Flight Operations or Careers as their interest track.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
   Flight 1 & 2 – Students will discover aviation, the basics of airplane systems, gain an
    understanding of aerodynamic principles, airport facilities, air traffic control services,
    communication procedures, and sources of flight information. Students will also be
    introduced to the variable atmosphere and its effect on aircraft operations, and learn the
    basics of navigation using charts and radio aids. Students will be exposed to survival
    and situations involving planned execution of methods to sustain life.

      Careers 1 & 2 – Self-understanding is the foundation of a planned career choice.
       Students will explore personal characteristics, major interests, aptitudes, and values
       related to various occupations. Understanding job finding, interviewing skills, career and
       lifestyle goals, impact of cultural diversity, technology, and an expanding and competitive
       global economy will help the student meet the challenges of continuous changing job
       market. The focus of this course will be supplemented with surveys, evaluations, career
       goal-setting objectives, and career cruising. The Student Success Plan (SSP) will be
       fully completed by each student to include the “My Files” and “My Journal” sections as
       instructed.
