Flight Operations

  • Fundamentals of Aerospace

    This course is designed as the foundational course for both the Aviation Maintenance and the Flight Operations pathways. Students will gain a fundamental knowledge base in aviation history and regulations, the basic principles of flight, aerospace careers, and factors influencing work systems, aerospace technologies, and basic aviation meteorology. These concepts can later be applied to various aerospace occupations. Classroom and lab activities will assure students a thorough understanding of the aerospace environment. The pre-requisite for this course is advisor approval.

    Flight Operations I, Navigation and Communication

    Navigation and Communication are essential to the safe operation of aircraft within the airspace system. This course provides a foundation that enables the student to apply the basics of aircraft navigation and utilize efficient communication methods for safe aircraft operations. The prerequisite for this course is Fundamentals of Aerospace.

    Flight Operations II, Aviation Meteorology

    Atmospheric dynamics and concepts are addressed to build a meteorological foundation that will enable students to understand environmental variables that create and change the earth’s weather. Meteorological techniques will be used in analyzing, charting, and forecasting weather patterns, and students will apply learned skills to the aeronautical needs and procedures of the air transportation industry. The prerequisite for this course is Flight Operations I.

    Aviation Meteorology, Georgia Board of Regents Approved Embedded Science

    Atmospheric dynamics and concepts are addressed to build a meteorological foundation that will enable students to understand environmental variables that create and change the earth’s weather. Meteorological techniques will be used in analyzing, charting, and forecasting weather patterns, and students will apply learned skills to the aeronautical needs and procedures of the air transportation industry.
