Flight Training

 The Argonaut flight training program is built in partnership with United Airlines Aviate Academy and uses a state-of-the-art simulation lab at Davis A&M High School with Redbird simulators and Guided Independent Flight Training (GIFT) software. Through an intensive ground school course, scholars take advantage of the available simulation lab gaining time at the controls without the distractions of the cockpit. Once they have mastered the basics they take flight in Argonaut’s Piper Cherokee airplane to put theory into real-world practice again up to ten (10) hours of flight time in preparation for post-secondary flight training educational opportunities. 

Drones

The Unmanned Aviation Systems (UAS), i.e. drones, educational pathways are designed to meet the passions and career interests of the diverse scholars of Davis A&M High School. Scholars all start by earning their Trust Certificate to fly as hobbyists. Once this is complete they can branch off into several directions, including drone racing, design/building/repair, earning their FAA Part 107 Certification, and then professional experiences. 

Aviation Mechanics

In partnership with United Airlines and the Aviation Institute Of Maintenance, Argonaut is designing pathways with immersive learning experiences preparing scholars for careers as an airframe & powerplant technician. The goal is while scholars are in high school they will complete the 400 hours of education and training to pass the FAA General Knowledge Exam, the first step in becoming an Aviation Mechanic.
