Do you know a student ages 12–17 who’s curious about what it takes to become a pilot? Sign them up for Introduction to Ground School, a four-part workshop created to offer students the basics of pilot training and inspire a love of flight.

Please email Valerie Blome at VBlome@WingsMuseum.org to register.

The cost to attend ground school is $30, and materials will be provided. This fee provides the attendee with an annual “student membership” to Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. Museum members are FREE. This course includes an introductory FLIGHT in a single-engine aircraft with a certified Colorado pilot. Flights will be individually scheduled at a later date, and will take place at Wings Over the Rockies Exploration of Flight on the south side of Centennial Airport.

Content includes:

  • Requirements to become a pilot
  • Aircraft parts and terms
  • Aerodynamics
  • Aircraft systems and instruments
  • Airport signs and lighting
  • Airspace fundamentals

For students ninth grade and up, who have some aviation background and are ready to begin flight training, consider the complete Private Pilot Ground School course. This offers a comprehensive lecture series from Certified Flight Instructors, perfect for student pilots.
