About the Program

Students in Aviation Studies will spend their freshmen year building a foundation in both engineering and aeronautics reflective of the high school curriculum developed by Embry Riddle University, the world’s largest accredited university system specializing in aviation and aerospace. In the sophomore, junior and senior years, students solely focus on aviation. They are exposed to multiple career pathways within the field and prepare for a career-recognized industry certification, the Remote Pilot Airman Certificate with a small UAS Rating (Part 107). Students study Aviation Weather, Introduction to National Airspace Systems, Air Traffic Control and Unmanned Aerial Systems. In addition, students participate and maintain an academically rigorous schedule that supports NJ high school graduation requirements.
