Introduction to Ground School is a four-part workshop created to offer students ages 12-17 the basics of pilot training and inspire a love of flight.

Please email to register. 

The cost to attend ground school is $30. This fee provides the attendee with an annual “student membership” to Wings Over the Rockies. 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
