An aviation science course is now offered through TCC, Embry-Riddle and Flightline and instructors say they hope to teach students about the many opportunities in aviation. The class will also give an introduction to flying, the history, and the science of aviation. Instructors say the course will help students pursue a variety of careers.
The instructor of the class, Charles Russo said, "We want it to be a little more inclusive. You could come here and have no desire to even be a pilot and just have an interest in aviation or maybe another part of the aviation field--for example maintenance or management."
Once students complete the class, they will have the skills necessary to take the Private Pilot written exam if they choose.
