Aircraft Command Experience is an aviation STEM program focused on providing foundational knowledge, skills and experience in the aviation and aerospace career fields. Exploring both the Pilot and UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) pathways, students work toward obtaining the Federal Aviation Administration’s Private Pilot Knowledge Test and/or the Part 107 Remote Pilot Test. Topics covered in the Pilot pathway include aviation history, principals of flight and aerodynamic forces, pilot and aircraft qualifications, aircraft systems, pre- and post-flight procedures, flight maneuvers, and cockpit management. UAS-specific topics include UAS regulations, airspace classification and operating requirements, safety protocols, aircraft loading and performance, and operating environments.
