Wings is thrilled to announce the expansion of the Aerospace Exploration Pathway to the Exploration of Flight campus at Centennial Airport! For the upcoming 2024/2025 school year, Aerospace Exploration – Centennial will be open to high school students (grades 9-12) and focus on two primary pathways with a drone pilot course and private pilot course. Each of the courses will prepare students to become certified by the FAA. Wings Aerospace Exploration is an enrichment program that complements but does not take place of a regular education program.

This program is located at Exploration of Flight at Centennial Airport (13005 Wings Way, Englewood, CO 80112).

Scholarships are available. Contact us for an application.
