Woodlake High School is introducing its students to a two-year Aviation Pathway, which caters to grades 9 through 12. The new Aviation Pathway is part of the Transportation Sector in the Aviation and Aerospace Transportation Services Pathway. The pathway consists of two classes: Math for Aviation and Aviation 1. The first class, Math for Aviation, is an alternative to Integrated Math 2 approved as a “g” Math course in the University of California System. The class consists of a project-based learning approach introducing students to the STEMPilot Curriculum. Students will use flight simulators and work in “flight crews” to accomplish flight missions. The complete course in the Aviation Pathway will use AOPA’s High School Curriculum as well as the SAFEDrone Software which will prepare students to earn industry credentials.
Through Woodlake’s program, students will complete two years of aviation coursework to earn a recognized industry certificate, a-g college credit, and a California Career and Technical Education pathway completion. For their industry credentials, students will have the opportunity to become OSHA 10 certified and receive an aviation certificate, such as a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) drone operator license. Students will also complete a two-year Math for Aviation program that earns a-g college preparatory credit with the University of California System and satisfies a California Career and Technical Education pathway.
With Phase 2 underway, Woodlake is introducing its students to its online aviation program, allowing them to learn in-demand, transferable math and physics skills. At school, students are applying that knowledge through flight simulator, mechanical, and safety demonstrations. Woodlake is also establishing dual-credit college preparatory classes by partnering with Reedley College.
