COURSE DESCRIPTION:
FAA Ground School is an upper level JROTC course that is the academic portion of flight training. The student examines and applies the concepts in the topics of physiology,
meteorology, aircraft systems, federal aviation regulations, aerodynamics, and communications. FAA Ground School informs the student of many important aspects of flying that
are not covered during the air training. Upon the successful completion of the requirements, the student may qualify to take the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) Private Pilot
License Ground School exam. Literacy strategies are integrated throughout the curriculum.

References in parentheses following each performance standard refer to and are aligned with the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps Curriculum Guide – Honors
Ground School Program (HGSP) and New Mexico Content Standard, Benchmarks, and Performance Standards in Science (Sc), Career Readiness (CR), Studies Performance
Standards (SS), Health (He), Language Arts (NMLA) and APS Language Arts Standards (APSLA).
