The Twin Cities School aviation program is coordinated by Michael Johnson, a licensed pilot, advanced ground instructor, and commercial drone operator. Initial programs are taught by computer simulation and provide an introduction to careers in aviation. Students are introduced to a wide range of aviation career paths including aircraft maintenance technician, airport services, airline dispatcher, air traffic control, pilot, military aviation, drone operator, and other aviation careers. Field trips to local airports, either through virtual platforms or to be delivered in a socially distant manner, provide hands on experience with aircraft and related technology, and provide an opportunity for students to see the world from a new perspective. The aviation program strengthens basic reading and math skills, provides hands-on experience with science, technology and engineering, and teaches employment skills, such as the value of showing up on time and being responsible with work assignments. Students discover pathways to in-demand aviation careers and entrepreneurship.
