Our aviation class was recently awarded a grant from the Civil Air Patrol and Pierce Aviation, thanks to the efforts of our aviation teacher, Dan Zwerg. With these grants, our students now have access to the XPlane 12 software along with the Garmin G1000 and GNS530. These tools provide our students with a flight simulator that imitates the real-world challenge of flying with controls that match those found on actual planes. Our class is excited to take advantage of this opportunity to soar to new heights.
