Air Age Education. Aviation Career Awareness Program.
Petrie, Edwin T.
Described is a program designed to help introduce the broad scope of occupational careers available with general aviation. The program is designed to aid the teacher in presenting the basic principles of flight, essential facts about general aviation as well as its occupational opportunities. It replaces previous elementary student materials, and integrates career awareness lesson plans and activities with the most popular items incorporated in the previous kits. The program offers a series of booklets, cloud charts, an airplane model with movable control surfaces, a flight chart and a road map. Each of the units in this book begins with objectives related to learning basic principles of aviation and objectives designed to provide awareness of careers appropriate to each unit. The objectives are linked to teaching strategies and resource materials. (Author/EB)
