Aviation Career & Technical High School Reviews

331 reviews
All Categories
In Aviation High School, I have learned many technical skills that most teenagers would not learn otherwise. My understandings have guided me through the principles of flight, jet engine, reciprocating engine, and through different aspects of avionics, electronics, hydraulics, and pneumatic.These four years of journey at Aviation High School has expedited my interest in engineering questioning every aircraft component from an engineering view of how it worked and why. Hence, when I got to discover the fascinating sides of physics and math beyond aircraft, I became more vigorous to pursue a career in engineering. Being able to enter the minds of engineers by reading aircraft manuals, I only found myself being more eager to achieve a career as an engineer. I have also experienced with critical thinking related to understanding and analyzing technical data such as aircraft maintenance manuals as well as performing practical hand skill jobs since my freshman year of High School.

I graduated class of 81 with both my A&P. I fly back for 30 year reunion and visited on an optional day for students. I witnessed a group of motivated kids working on their projects. I was impressed with display of robotics and jet-engine (not available my day) projects. I always loved aircraft and Aviation provided a first class experience for someone that wants to go into the industry. Funny thing is that you dont have end up in an aviation career.I am a CISCO CCNP Senior Network Engineer with a BS and 25 years in IT. Good thing is what you learn will always come in handy - guaranteed! The shop teachers kept it as close to industry as possible. I read some of the negative comments made and I truly believe that those kids would be satisfied attending their neighborhood schools and finish their day at 12. - Paul A Class 1981.
At first, when I heard about this school, I instantly applied to this school simply due to this school being pretty close to where I live. I have never had an idea of what Aviation even is until I have started here. However, this school is all about Aviation Maintenance, which is essentially learning about aircrafts and fixing them as hands-on experiences. We work for a certification from the Federal Aviation Administration as certified mechanics allowing us to work on aircrafts in the US. Half of a day is spent in special classes where we learn and work with aircraft structures and the rest of the day is spent on the normal academics like a traditional High School. What I would like to see improved in this school is more choices for learning a foreign language and more clubs and activities. Overall, this school is a decent school for teens who may want to be aircraft mechanics in the future.
