Programs

IN-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

The In-School Program partners local classroom teachers with a WMFA professional for an entire school year to bring math and science to life through:

• Research

• Hands-on projects 

• Field experiences

 

All students have the chance to experience the thrill of flight first hand. Last year, over 250 students flew in a WMFA plane – for many, a first time experience! Last year WMFA served select Grand Rapids Public Schools, Plainwell Community Schools, and Muskegon Public Schools classrooms, with approximately 270 students enrolled.

 
 

YOUTH FLIGHT & APPLIED SCIENCE

The Youth Pilots students attend ground school weekly and fly with an FAA Certified Flight Instructor. Key to this program is the Private Pilot Ground School that incorporates the formal training that all pilots must fulfill to obtain their private pilot’s license. WMFA developed co-curriculum to adapt the ground school material to a middle/high school level. These materials meet the requirements of the FAA written test as well as Michigan Science Standards. Youth pilots also learn about aviation-related careers through:

 

• Field trips

• Guest speakers

• Extra-curricular activities

• Community service

 

Students who complete the program may earn their private pilot’s license. Scholarships are available to students willing to dedicate the time and effort to achieve this goal. Careers, among many, related to aviation:

 

• Pilots

• Engineers

• Technicians

• Meteorologists

• Remote sensing

• Communication

 

West Michigan Flight Academy is opening up whole new world to West Michigan students.
