Mr. Bobby Woods
The THS Aviation (CTE) course seeks to inspire high school students toward aviation-related careers after high school. This program uses the accredited 4-year AOPA Aviation STEM curriculum.
Tremendous job opportunities exist in aviation. Virtually all aviation careers need motivated and hard-working people to meet current aviation employment demands. This includes the need for aircraft pilots, drone pilots, aircraft mechanics, aircraft fuels, Air Traffic Control, airport and airfield management, safety, and hundreds of other exciting and well-paying careers. Our goal is to expose our diverse group of students to aviation who might otherwise never realize the excellent careers that are available in the aviation sector. These jobs as aircraft pilots, or drone-related field mechanics and the many other aviation support jobs are completely within reach!
