航空学校

从Vimeo加载...

The history of aviation instruction at 斑鸠 goes back to 1920 when cadets learned to fly World War I surplus floatplanes provided by the U.S. 海军. In 1970, 卡尔弗学院 was the first High School in the United States to have its' own airport and operate its' own fleet of training aircraft.

Enrolling in the 航空学校 is for those students who have a genuine interest in learning how to fly. Just as a Midshipman's goal should be to receive US SAILING certification in Small Boats and Keelboats, an Aviation cadet's goals should be soloing and earning a Private Pilot's Certificate.

航空中队

Like all of the 上学校 programs, students must be 14 or older to enroll in Aviation. 然而, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) does impose certain age restrictions on aviation milestones that should be taken into consideration:

  • FAA笔试- 15岁
  • 独自飞行- 16岁
  • Private Pilot's Certificate – Age 17

Every student who enrolls in the 航空中队 must enroll in a double-period of aviation training per day. The class time is either spent on campus in ground school or at the airport taking flight and/or flight simulator lessons. Other than occasional trips to the airport which occur during the scheduled class time or student free time, aviators have the very same 斑鸠 experience as their Naval & 军队同行.

There is absolutely an expectation that all Aviation Cadets will extend their training beyond the classroom. Like Midshipmen who sail and Troopers who ride, Aviation Cadets need to experience the hands-on training at the controls of an aircraft or one of 斑鸠's FAA-certified Advanced Flight Simulators. 斑鸠 partners with a Flight School who will provide all airborne instruction.

There are additional fees for students enrolled in Aviation to cover the cost of the classroom instruction, flight simulator instruction and aircraft instruction. More detailed information regarding the additional fees and requirements associated with the 航空学校 will be posted on the flight company's website.

NOTE: Due to the high demand and limited capacity for flight training, students who receive approval for the 航空学校 will remain in a waitlisted status until initial payment and documentation have been received by the contracted flight company.

国际学生

重要的:班.S. citizens must receive clearance from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to be eligible for enrollment in the 航空中队. Once your student has been accepted into the aviation program, the flight school will be happy to help you complete the TSA application or answer any questions that you might have.

If your student does not have a U.S. Passport and enrolls in the Aviation Program, please visit the flight school’s website to start the TSA approval process as soon as possible.

航空的女孩 

All 上学校 girls are eligible to enroll in 斑鸠's Aviation Program by requesting "Aviation" as one of their top five class choices.  Girls enjoy the exact same training and experience as the boys in 斑鸠’s 航空学校 and are encouraged to enroll. 

Customized Training Schedule

Many students tell us they would like more opportunities to work on their flight training. We feel strongly that our aviators have the same 斑鸠 experience, along with the same character and leadership opportunities afforded the rest of the camp. We also understand that flight training requires more time and effort to master than many of the other disciplines. We will work with individual students to maximize their time at the airport, either by assigning more than the required double-period class time (otherwise consumed by electives) or by scheduling flights and simulators during evening or weekend free time.
