    Course Description:
    WSFCS Career Center Aviation is a two year course that covers a very wide area of the subject.  Although this is not a flight school, we cover aerodynamics, forces of flight, instrumentation, licensing, weather and other VFR "ground school" material. If gaining an education in both aviation flight and aircraft systems are what you are looking for....then you have found the starting line.  The program dives squarely into aircraft systems, safety, industry regulation, privileges, practices, physics of flight and even drone technology (yes.... we fly drones all year long).  At the finish of this two year journey, you will walk and talk aviation; equipped with the clear solid background knowledge essential for further advanced studies and/or an immediate entry into the industry.
