Aviation Program

The Ramapo Indian Hills Regional High School District is offering a four year sequence of high school aviation STEM courses developed by the Aircraft Owners and Pilot Association (AOPA).  The purpose of this four year program is for students to learn aviation concepts, skills, and understandings, prepare students for written exams leading to industry credentials (FAA Private Pilot written exam or P107 Remote Pilot Certification written exam), and excite students with possible career options in the field of aviation.  

Aviation and Aerospace (5 credits, CPE level) will be offered to all students, with preferential seating given to 9th-grade students interested in pursuing the 4-year sequence of courses.  The second year course, Physics of Flight, will be offered during the 2021-2022 school year as a 7.5 credit CPE-level laboratory-based science course, pending approval from AOPA and student enrollment in the program.  Please click through the presentations below for additional information about the program and the four-year course sequence!
