A Status Report of Aviation and Aerospace Education in California.
Sams, W. Earl
As a replacement to the 1970 version, reports of aviation-aerospace educational programs as of March, 1971, for 67 high schools and 6 community colleges of California, are included in this 1972 status report. Following a statement of the rationale and a discussion of the historical development, detailed descriptions are given for most institutions in connection with their student enrollments, course study, and program activities. The educational programs focus on aeronautical science, career education, industrial arts, interdisciplinary approach, military aerospace science, mechanical vocational education, and pilot and preflight. In some programs, the objectives are to prepare for the Federal Aviation Administration certificates. It is pointed out that an advisory committee is essential in carrying out such a statewide program. An overall list of California community colleges offering aviation education programs is also provided. Included in the appendices are excerpts from Education Code, a description of the aviation education survey, a list of high schools for which liability insurance is provided, and sources of information and assistance.
