Aerospace Education Courses

Career Pathways in Aerospace and Pilot Ground School are offered at Sandpoint High School. Instruction is led by career pilot and NIHSAP co-founder Ken Larson and SHS Career Pathways instructor Nayla Morton.


Career Pathways in Aerospace – A Survey of Aerospace and Aviation Careers students are treated to a broad spectrum of engaging industry-related guest speakers and field trips, such as visits to North Idaho College’s Aerospace Center for Excellence, Empire Aerospace, Quest Aircraft, Tamarack Aerospace Group and others.

Pilot Ground School covers training in the aeronautical knowledge areas required for the FAA Sport or Private Pilot examination. The topics covered include aerodynamics, airplane systems, weather, FAA regulations, navigation principles, spin awareness, incident reporting requirements and more.

Additional course offerings are planned. A near-term goal is to offer an Introduction to Aircraft Maintenance Technology course and an Aviation Mechanics Summer Camp led by FAA certified mechanics.
