Sisters High School Flight Science course introduces students to the world of sport aviation through a unique partnership with Sisters Eagle Air, the Sisters Science Club and other partners.
All enrolled students begin as "Young Eagles" in the Experimental Aircraft Association's (EAA) training program and get a free one-hour flight with a certified flight instructor (CFI). Students also receive logbooks and additional supplies donated from Sporty's Pilot Shop, the largest aviation supply shop in the country.
Each student will receive one hour of flight training per week for the 30-week course, this will fulfill half of the requirements for flight time for each student to receive a private pilot's license. Upon successful completion of the class, students will have finished all the ground-school requirements needed for this same license.
Students have the option to articulate this class with Central Oregon Community College (COCC) aviation program to work toward their first-level commercial license.
