Aviation Academy

In August 2011, SJVA launched an after school and summer program for 6th through 12th grade students. The club continues to meet one hour a week after school and holds an annual summer aviation program. The club focuses on the many aspects of aviation and serves to inspire and exposure students to pursue post-secondary education and careers in the field of aviation.  Students will learn about the principles of flight and aviation knowledge related to piloting, use X-Plane and Prepar3D Flight simulators to design and fly airplanes, practice flying RC airplanes on a RealFlight flight simulator, build model aircraft, and fly and maintain remote control airplanes. The club serves to inspire and expose students to the many aspects of aviation.
