REGISTER NOW FOR 2ND SEMESTER CLASSES!
We are currently looking for an Aviation teacher to step in as our past teacher accepted a job that did not allow for teaching during the day. If you know of someone who is capable of teaching a STEM course (they do not need to be a pilot) and would be interested in teaching, please reach out. firstname.lastname@example.org
It is an amazing course!
We are beyond excited and truly blessed that we are able to offer this Aviation program to our homeschool community!
Did you know that 763,000 new pilots will be needed in the world by 2039, based on Boeing's Pilot and Technician Outlook? Ironically, the number of pilot certificates issued by the Federal Aviation Administration has decreased more than 60 percent since 1980. This mismatch of supply and demand presents a tremendous opportunity for students to pursue aviation careers that they may not previously have considered.
Velos is offering a comprehensive aviation STEM curriculum for 8th - 12th grade homeschool students of the Upstate. These courses are part of three career and technical education (CTE) pathways: Pilot, Aerospace Engineering and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones).
We are excited to announce that we will offer an AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE along with the FLING program.
Semester One - The Flying Environment
This course is foundational for both manned and unmanned aviation, and will prepare students to take either of two Federal Aviation Administration tests: the Private Pilot Knowledge Test or the Part 107 Remote Pilot Knowledge Test. Topics include: pre-flight procedures, airspace, radio communications, aviation phraseology, regulations, airport operations, aviation safety, weather, cockpit management, and emergency procedures.
Semester Two Option 1 - Flight Planning
The Flight Planning course will cover remaining topics necessary for students to take the Federal Aviation Administration's Private Pilot Knowledge Test. Students will learn pilot and aircraft qualifications, cross-country flight planning, weight and balance, performance and limitations, human factors, chart use, night operations, navigation systems, and aeronautical decision making. Students will be provided the opportunity to participate in multiple practice examinations. At the end of this course, a school may choose to arrange for students to be signed off to take the Federal Aviation Administration's Private Pilot written exam.
Target Level: 8th - 12th grades
