Aviation

NEW FOR 2018!
Designed in conjunction with Hillsboro Aero Academy, one of the largest helicopter and airplane flight schools in the United States, the Wy’East Mountain Academy aviation program places passionate career driven student pilots in the right place at the right time with the right people.

The NEW! Aviation Discover Program kicks off June 16, 2019 with a seven-week course giving students a unique introduction to aviation through a survey of aviation history, the national airspace, and operation and requirements for drones, airplanes, helicopters, and gliders . . . all while being on campus with the world-renowned Windells and High Cascade Snowboard Camps!  Students will not just read about these facets but rather experience aviation through actual flight time along with field trips to some of the Northwest’s most respected aviation institutions such as Columbia Helicopters, Vans Aircraft, Boeing, the FAA’s air traffic tower at PDX, and more!
