Transportation, Distribution & Logistics Career Cluster®
The School of Aviation at Irving High School in Irving, TX was launched in 2012 to provide learners with rigorous academic coursework, paired with the full continuum of work-based learning experiences related to the aviation industry. Learners begin with a broad understanding of aviation and aircraft technology and, in their junior year, choose a specialization – either aviation science or aviation technology. The four-year program allows learners to earn college credit through an articulation agreement with Spartan College. Additionally, the Academy requires learners to earn two industry-recognized credentials related to workplace safety. Learners can also earn Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications to become licensed to fly drone equipment.
